You tell us

“The reason I joined SIPS (Seniors in Partnership Group) was for Lever Gardens to get a voice”
Frank Pitts – Lever Gardens

You tell us

"Over the three years or so that we have been involved, we have been to meetings where we discuss the choices and costs of the materials for the planned programmes and general repairs. Sometimes new ideas and materials are brought in and we discuss whether or not they are suitable, cost effective, and whether the tenants will like them.  At another meeting we helped to choose a new contractor by reading through all the tenders put forward.  We have also been involved in the fencing programme helping to decide on the designs for the new fences."
Roy and Eileen Woods – Design & Specification Group

 

In your words

"The SIP group is a good way of finding out what’s going on within Bolton at Home and it helps and supports older customers to address their issues."
Lynda Brockbank, member
