Well Done Ted! 29/09/2016

The Association of Retained Council Housing (ARCH) announced tenant, William 'Ted' Jones from Stevenage Borough Council, as the 2016 ARCH Community Champion at their Tenants' Conference on Thursday 22 September.


The award recognises the commitment and hard work undertaken by tenants of ARCH members to improve their local communities. The ARCH Tenants' conference is held every year and is organised by the ARCH Tenants' Group.


Ted joined his local residents group in 2010 and has since successfully campaigned for several initiatives to improve his local area including resurfacing of a road, the regeneration of a local shopping square, setting up a new community centre and successfully presenting the case for Decent Homes to the Select Committee at Westminster which resulted in a grant for £55million to provide a better living standard for tenants.


Maureen Herdman, Resident Involvement Manager at Stevenage Council said, "Ted is proof that community spirit is still very much alive in Stevenage through his work and drive to make his local area a better place for everyone."


Jenny Hill, chair of the ARCH Tenants' Group said, "We received some great nominations, however Ted's stood out to the judges. Over the years, he's achieved so much for the wider community as well as for tenants. He has worked tirelessly to make his local area a better place to live."


ARCH would like to thank Warwick District Council, Ian Williams, Thistle Insurance and HouseMark for supporting the conference.
