A Rothesay-based housing association has won a top award for its work on tenant participation.

Fyne Homes’ housing admin officer Areasha Whitelaw collected the ‘Involving All’ award from STV weather forecaster - and former Bute Highland Games chieftain - Sean Batty, at the Tenant Participation Advisory Service event in St Andrews.

Teresa Shields, Fyne Homes’ head of housing services, said: “I am delighted to say Fyne Homes won the TPAS ‘Involving All’ Award for our fun days and hot wheels events. The events involved tenants with young families aged 0-8 years and were held in collaboration with our NHS partners.

“This is great recognition in the industry for Fyne Homes and our tenants, and in particular for Areasha Whitelaw who led on this for us and put a great deal of work and passion into the organisation and promotion of the events.

“Thanks also to our NHS Nursery Nurse Tracy Rooney who was our resident child care expert for the events, helping link fun activities to child developmental milestones.”
