The long running case between QCC and the previous Management company BK has now been brought to a conclusion. More information will follow shortly particularly around the positive way this will impact residents. Let us know if you have any questions in the meantime, otherwise watch this space.
We just wanted to let everyone know that Dave, the Building Manager, is currently signed off work sick. Babs has stepped into his shoes and is doing a great job until he is back. We all wish Dave a speedy recovery and if you have any building related queries in the mean time direct them to Babs or to the directors via the website.
A big thanks to Dave and Babs for organising another great night and to everyone for showing up and making a big effort with food drink and the costumes you see below…..
Break out your witches and wizards costumes, broomsticks, pumpkins and black cats (although they are not allowed in the building so leave them out front). Dave and Babs are throwing another residents evening on the 3rd of November and as you can probably deduce its fancy dress.
Bring along some drinks and nibbles and anything halloween related but remember everyone must bring a ‘trick’ or a ‘treat’ as well.
Party kicks off in the garden at 7.30. Best costume wins a round of applause.
This is a big thanks to everyone that came along to the residents evening in September, we had about 50 people come through and join us in the garden. everyone brought along food and drinks and it made for a great party. Below are a few photos for you to enjoy or cringe at. Our big thanks to Dave and Babs for organising it all and clearing at the end of the night too. Another party will follow for Halloween.
Fetch out your sombreros, tequila bottles, floppy moustaches and any other stereotypical getup you can think of for our residents night on the 8th of September.
Babs and Dave are organising a Mexican themed party and people have offered to bring along nachos and dips, booze and so on for what will be another good fun night. It kicks off at 7.30 and will run until Dave loses his floppy moustache in a pint of tequila or until the first Durran Durran song comes on!
We will be in the garden by reception so stop by in fancy dress of you are brave enough.
