LHT Staff With Mr Chan

Staff proved that they are prepared to go the extra mile when they chose to dedicate their annual team building day to carrying out a range of tasks suggested by tenants for their 'Challenge LHT' event.

Liverpool Housing Trust (LHT) Property Services Team tackled a number of projects on behalf of sheltered housing tenants including erecting greenhouses, re-staining garden benches, giving a communal garden a makeover, re-decorating a tenant's flat and cooking 'breakfast with a song'.

Mr Chan, who received a makeover for his flat in Stanley Terrace, Toxteth was more than delighted with the result saying:

"The team worked really hard to achieve so much during the day; this is a real bonus."

Five teams took part on the day at four LHT sheltered housing schemes. Residents at LHT's Suzanne Boardman House in Anfield were treated to a 'café takeover' which included food, entertainment, a quiz and a raffle while a second team worked outside to erect a greenhouse and compete a range of garden work including creating raised flower beds.

Over at LHT's Florence Court in Walton, more garden work was in progress to prepare for a new greenhouse and create a vegetable patch so that residents can grow their own vegetables.

Meanwhile, LHT's Morley Court residents in Knotty Ash enjoyed a carnival themed party and a performance from the local St Teresa's Majorettes team.

Chris Coulter, scheme manager for Suzanne Boardman House said:

"The day was a huge success, all the residents enjoyed the food and entertainment at the café and the garden has never looked so good!"

LHT managing director, Sue Westwater congratulated the teamwork saying:

"LHT Property Services completed a number of projects on the day. They are a great example of what can be achieved through working together with a shared goal."

Simon Brown, LHT director, asset management spoke on behalf of all the teams from LHT Property Services when he said:

"Staff came up with the idea, planned the day and put in the hard work to get excellent results."
