We had to bid a fond farewell to two of our long-standing TIG-Panel members, Rebekah Gronowski from Tranent and Heather Shaw from Haddington.
Rebekah joined the TIG in 2013 and served as the Convener for several years before stepping back down to member in 2018. Rebekah has been a valuable member of TIG-Web, taking a keen interest in digital services and scrutiny over the years.
“I have found the work most interesting; I thrive on work which uses my brain and challenges my intellect. It has been a real education for me to learn the minutiae of running a Housing Association such as ours and I have appreciated learning how to conduct in-depth scrutiny of the many processes involved. I will miss our meetings and the interaction with you all, but I will stay in touch and will be a 'distance member' of TIG as and when needed. I look forward to seeing many of you at our next AGM, hopefully.”
Heather joined the TIG in 2017, and has been an enthusiastic and reliable member since. As she and her husband have moved, and are no longer ELHA tenants, we have to say farewell. We’re sad to see her go but wish all the best with her new home.
“I will miss it very much, it is such a friendly group and I learned so much. I wish you all every success in the future.”
So – we have some space on our TIG-Panel. If you’d like to get involved, why not come along to a meeting or two to see if it is your thing? This year is likely to be an interesting one, with our Large Tenant Satisfaction Survey and a bus tour of our some of our housing stock coming up in 2022-23 (plus all the usual – reviewing tenant feedback, complaint reporting, sneak peeks at new services and of course – getting to scrutinise areas of work where tenants think we could be meeting the Scottish Social Housing Charter objectives a little better!)
To let us know you’re interested, you can have a chat with your Housing Officer, or fill in the ‘Join In’ form in your My Home account.
