On Friday 26th May, The Holme Collingwood Social Club hosted a very successful social event with an attendance of around 45 residents. This was one of four social events, one for each season, to get to know the neighbours and enjoy some wine and nibbles.
The committee were able to provide a grazing table and hot finger food for the guests, funded by The Knight’s Community Grant.
Holme applied for the Community Grant so that residents could meet and socialise in their communal space and provide delicious food for residents to enjoy.
A wonderful way to get to know the neighbours and build relationships with those living in the same community.
The Knight’s community building grants.
The benefits of a strong community within an Owners Corporation include increased security, reduced tenant turn over, and improved resident well being. While as Owners Corporation Managers, our main role is to facilitate the management of common property, we strongly believe that we also have a role to play in the facilitation of a strong community spirit.
This is why each year The Knight awards grants to Committees looking to implement a community building initiative at their property. Previous initiatives have ranged from Christmas in July celebrations to Trick or Treating and all sharing the common goal of getting neighbours together to get to know each other better.
Keep an eye out on our Facebook page, and be sure to be subscribed to our newsletter to find out about the upcoming application process, and how The Knight could help your Committee with community building in 2021.
