Our social programme is one of the things that makes Zebra unique. We want to give residents a great experience when the they stay with Zebra and an understanding of London and the UK. Sampling the culture and life of London is an essential part of that experience. We want residents to have fond memories of London and to have created enduring friendships and understanding throughout the world. If you have any ideas or suggestions about how we can further enhance the social programme let Steve know. Stevem@zebrahousing.com
Van Gogh and Britain – Tate Britain, Saturday 30 March 2019, at 11.00am
The Mousetrap - St Martin's Theatre – Wednesday 27 March 2019 at 7.30pm
We have ten tickets in the stalls at £25 each (£52.50 face value)
The Mousetrap is a murder mystery play by Agatha Christie. The Mousetrap opened in London's West End in 1952, and has been running continuously since then. It’s an absolute classic.
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.
Our Board met on 21 February and approved the budget and annual rent increase. We also agreed policies on complaints and anti-social behaviour. We began to plan for a Board strategy conference in September when we’ll look at plans for the next 5-10 years.
We have secured a limited number of tickets for London’s longest running play, ‘The Mousetrap’. This gripping murder mystery has been entertaining audiences for over 60 years.
We have fantastic seats, with a face value of £52, for £25 each.
The performance takes place on Wednesday 27th March, 7.30pm.
Tickets are priced at £25 each.
If you would like to reserve tickets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your name, full address and the number of tickets you require. We will then send you confirmation and payment details. The tickets will be delivered to your residence a day or two before the visit.
