The Zebra Housing Office will be closed for the Easter holiday on Friday 30th March and Monday 2nd April.
The office will reopen at 9.30am on Tuesday 3rd April.
In an emergency only, please contact your warden.
We’ve already told you that we are now planning for the major initiatives we are going to undertake in the financial year April 2018 to March 2019 .
We want to do some external repairs and decorations to Jerome House which is beginning to look a bit jaded. And if the budget permits we also like to refurbish the common areas at 34 Chalcot Crescent. We will also continue with our programme of upgrading kitchens and bathrooms and improving fire detection and safety in our residences.
We are going to review our policies on data protection and lettings (how and to whom we let our accommodation) and look at our internal processes and IT so we can improve our services to you. And we want to continue to bear down on our costs whilst achieving efficiency savings.
We want to continue and expand our social programme.
And you can contribute to our plans by letting us know your ideas and how you think Zebra should develop in the forthcoming year.
RESIDENT ENGAGEMENT POLICY
In November our Board agreed a new “Zebra Resident Engagement Policy” and we are all keen for any thoughts, ideas, and inputs from Zebra residents. The new policy is on the blog now.
After 12 years Alex Adjei, Finance Officer, has left Zebra. We are all very sorry to see him go but all good things come to an end. We wish him every success in his future career. And welcome to Joshua Fagunwa, who joins us to replace Alex in the Finance team.
Zebra has always made the health and safety of our residents our top priority. The first thing our Board reviews at every meeting is a report detailing the actions we are taking to deliver the safest possible environments to residents. The terrible Grenfell Tower tragedy has refocussed everyone on the dangers of fire in residential buildings.
Over the last two weeks we’ve been holding fire drills, which we carry out every 6 months, at all of our residences. Our advice to residents, when the fire alarms have been activated, is that they must evacuate the buildings. Can we thank you all for your co-operation in evacuating the buildings when asked to do as part of these recent drills.
