Meet the Contractors Event, New Gorbals

To mark the start of our reactive maintenace contract with New Gorbals Housing Association, Bell Group and the youngsters of New Gorbals recently spent a fun-packed afternoon dressing up and taking park in a host of decoration themed activities.  The event allowed New Gorbals HA residents the opportunity to meet the contractors who will be responsible for delivering the high quality repair service.

At this celebratory event, youngsters joined in on a host of decoration themed activities, including face-painting and Halloween cookie and cupcake decoration. There were goodie bags for all children and refreshments for adults. But that’s not all. Everyone had the opportunity to enter the New Gorbals fancy dress competition, with a chance to win  a two hundred and fifty pound Argos voucher!

There were also plenty of activities for adults, at our DIY and Upcycle Masterclasses local residents were shown how to take their old, washed out furniture and bring it back to life, using only some top tips and a coat of paint.

The event was a tremendous success, with an overwhelming response to the fancy dress competition. Choosing a winner was extremely difficult, due to the incredibly high standard, however, eventually the judges made a decision and chose a superb brother and sister team as joint winners. The attention to detail on their Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson costumes was incredible, and captured the essence of the two famous legendary music icons!

 

"We are delighted to see Bell group build such positive relationships within the community."
