Sheltered Housing: The Musical

Last week over 100 tenants who live in our sheltered schemes across Rhondda Cynon Taff came together to celebrate Sheltered: The Musical.

Every year our Sheltered team members work their socks off to put on a day of entertainment for their tenants. Claire James, Sheltered and Supported Housing Manager, helps to coordinate the planning of the events, she describes where the idea originated from: “The events started as part of the original Fun Day in Pontyclun where we had an entertainment marquee with bingo, entertainment and tea and coffee and they’ve just grown from there.

“Every year the events are bigger and better through suggestions from tenants and staff; we’re always learning from previous events.”

This year everyone was invited to a musical themed bash at Hawthorn Leisure Centre, with a jam packed agenda there was plenty for the guests to do including a quiz and raffle as well as a buffet lunch and entertainment from local singer Richard Beavis.

“Our tenants love getting together and meeting people from different schemes. With customer engagement being approached in different ways at Trivallis this year, it was the perfect opportunity to hold a specific event for our sheltered tenants,” explained Claire.

Tenants from the Rhondda, Cynon and Taff valleys travelled down to attend the event and got truly stuck into the activities that were organised throughout the afternoon. When they were asked what they thought of the day, they said:

Lovely day, couldn’t fault anything

The staff were wonderful, bless them all

Very well organised

Very entertaining, well laid out, it was a really good day

Excellent service from the lovely, lively volunteers

A real change, it was really enjoyable
