Welcome to our new ‘local’ website which has been built in consultation with our customers and with their neighbourhoods in mind. When planning this website, we listened to our customers who said they wanted the new website to equally represent all of the areas in the Borough, celebrate where they live and work and clearly signpost the services that RBH provides.
To complement the local content, we launched a Photography Competition which asked employees and RBH customers to send us their favourite images of the Borough. The images would then be used for the Neighbourhood pages of the site.
We were amazed by the number of entries we had, receiving 150 images across seven categories. The images highlighted the talent we have in the Borough and made us proud of the landmarks and heritage within it.
Over the past couple of weeks, a judging panel, made up of members of our Board, Representative body and Executive Management Team have cast their vote. Due to social distancing restrictions, the entries were displayed in an anonymous way via an online survey tool.
We are delighted to announce that the overall winner is Scott Lawson for his photo of the Co-operative Bridge, who will be receiving a brand new Smart Watch.
The winners of the neighbourhood categories, who each win £50 worth of Amazon vouchers are:
- Rochdale Central – Scott Lawson
- Rochdale North – Ian Lord
- Rochdale South – Ian Lord
- Middleton – Ruth Camm
- Heywood – Judith Wadsworth
- Pennines – Ian Campbell
Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to everyone who entered and helped us to judge the competition. After such an amazing response, we wanted to showcase as many of the entries as we could. Please browse this website and take a look at some of the images across each section. We think these images give the website a really local, vibrant feel and celebrates the talent we have within our communities.
Why not also take a look at our brand new Customer Portal, MyRBH. A brand new way to access your information online, view your rents statement, pay your rent and report emergency repairs. In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, MyRBH gives you an additional channel to contact us, and is just one of the ways we are supporting customers during this difficult time.
