Families from four Radius Housing neighbourhoods celebrate
the upcoming Easter holiday with a street party in their Shared Housing
The day’s activities which were part funded by Radius Housing and the Department for Communities, brought joy to many as families from Rockmount Close, Ardmore Road and Ardmore Meadows all came together to celebrate. There were Easter themed craft tables, football shoot-outs, a petting farm with cart rides on a miniature pony and not forgetting egg hunts with special guest, The Easter Bunny! It was a great day for all, and every child walked away with their own Easter Egg to enjoy on the big day.
An additional treat for tenants on the day was the opportunity to congregate and spend time together in a pre-pandemic manner. With the onset of Covid-19, many of our tenants were isolated and unable to meet their neighbours during the lockdowns. As the guidelines and restrictions continue to lift, we are pleased to assist in bringing communities back together again. Our Communities team work hard to organise a plethora of events across Northern Ireland for all our tenants of all ages and among those, the shared housing Easter fun days have been a much welcomed return to normality.
The Easter fun day was supported by the Department for Communities and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive’s Housing for All Shared Housing Programme. The Programme has its origins in the NI Executive Together: Building a United Community Strategy which reflects the Executive’s commitment to improving community relations and continuing the journey towards a more united and shared society. £10m has been invested in the Newry, Mourne and Down District shared housing developments and associated five-year Good Relations Plans since 2018; when the Department for Communities outlined their goals of investment.
