ZEBRA NEWS MARCH 2019

Annual  Plan

The Board approve the plan for the financial year 2019/20. Our major project is the replacement of the boilers at Jeannine House, which we’ll carry out over the summer commencing in June. This is a big job and we’ve already done much of the preparatory work. The boilers need to move to the back of the building. There should be minimal disruption to residents. Additionally we’ll be refurbishing the stairwell at 34 Chalcot to include new lighting and replacing the fire detection equipment at 8 Chalcot. There is also a lot of additional although minor work that we intend to carry out across all buildings to improve our Health and Safety regime as well as continuing our programme of bathroom and kitchen replacement.

Board News

At the meeting in November the Board agreed a new Health and Safety Policy which codifies all aspects of what we currently do. The Board asked that we put information about this on our website in the “Info for Residents Section”. We’ll work on this in the New Year so that residents can understand both Zebra’s responsibilities and their own and what to do in emergencies.
