What is House Talk?

House Talk is the free magazine made exclusively for our council tenants and leaseholders.

How do I get a copy?

We deliver House Talk to all of our tenants and leaseholders three times a year. That’s one in spring, summer and winter.

What’s the magazine about?

Lots of great stuff! Inside each magazine, you’ll get loads of information about:

  • your housing services
  • money-saving
  • local events and celebrations
  • important updates
  • fun activities and things to do

Please call 02392 834 835 if you need help with the survey.

BAE donates £500,000

BAE Systems has donated £500,000 to the council to build and fit-out a new educational space in Stamshaw Adventure Playground.

During the day, it’ll offer support from career advisors and local experts (including our employability team) to people not in employment, education or training. In the evening, it’ll host a youth club offering a wide range of activities.

We’re currently drawing up the design plans which locals will be able to have their say.
