Residents channel their competitive side at quiz

A messaging app helped build the tension at a residents’ quiz.

Residents from our housing with support schemes simultaneously took part in the quiz, with a WhatsApp group set up to link everyone playing.

The overall winners were Helen Fox House with 36 marks out of 45.

Pauline Rooks, Housing with Support Officer, said: “The quiz went very well and all the tenants who took part enjoyed it.

“A Whatsapp group was used to send the scores through simultaneously and this helped the atmosphere of competition and excitement!

“It was a very successful event with support from the Tenancy Management, Communities, Fire and Repairs teams.”

The members of each scheme’s winning team received £10 Love to Shop vouchers and the overall winning team won a trophy and £100 to spend on something for their scheme.

There are plans for the quiz to be a regular annual event.
