What’s been happening AND what’s coming up

here’s been lots of things happening over on Caistor Road, Barton, during the year. Headed by Ongo Estate Coordinator Fran Rhodes, the Viking Resource Centre has been a hub of activity to help support local residents living in the area. Working alongside other members of Ongo staff, the centre hosts a teatime club, which uses vegetables grown by local residents and donations from the local Tesco supermarket. As well as serving weekly nutritious meals, other events have included a garden party to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday, which included a guest appearance from Great British Bake Off’s Nancy Birtwhistle, and an end of term party. Ongo Homes staff worked with Barton residents, Safer Neighbourhoods, and Humberside Police on a Big Tidy Up event, which involved litter picking and removing waste items to help improve the appearance of the area. Residents at Overton Court enjoyed a pirate celebration recently at the opening of the new pirate park in the area, as organised by Ongo staff. Keep an eye on our events page, www.ongo.co.uk/events for all the latest goings on.
