Five years and counting!

At the end of March 2017 it will be five years since RBH took on ownership of the homes formally owned by the Council.

Tenants voted in favour of this transfer to gain a better future and on the understanding that RBH would fulfil 50 promises about our services and quality of homes. The promises were originally developed by a group of enthusiastic and involved members on our Tenant Panel. The tenant members on our continuous improvement panels have been working with us over the past five years to check on our progress in delivering on the promises and only once they are satisfied do they sign off each promise as completed.

We are proud to say that we are on track to achieve all 50 promises and we are starting our celebrations on the anniversary of the transfer date (26th March) and going right through until June.

Your Most Memorable Moments

Getting involved in our celebrations

From 1 April we will celebrate the achievement of our kept promises. We’ll post information online and via social media and invite you to send in your ‘Most Memorable Moments’ (your MMMs) of the past five years.

Your most memorable moment might be something that was life changing - like moving into your home or starting work for RBH. It might be something that had a big impact: new kitchen or bathroom or meeting a new neighbour or colleague. It may be something that was difficult: the floods last Christmas spring to mind or an emergency repair. It might be equally be something very simple.

We want to know what stands out in your memory. We want to hear your stories. We will add your MMM comments and photos to each promise to create an online album to share everyone’s experiences. We will showcase the album at our “All Together” Annual Members Meeting on 12 September.

Send your most memorable moments to or using our special online form, which will be available shortly.
