The contractors working upgrading Flintshire County Council’s housing stock have been helping Connah’s Quay residents with a makeover.

Repairs and maintenance provider, Wates Living Space, has been working on improvements at Glan y Morfa Court as part of the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) upgrade work being carried out in the area. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

WHQS is a national standard of quality for homes set by the Welsh Government and the work being carried out also gives employment and apprenticeship opportunities to local people. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Wates employees spent time on a makeover for a covered walkway and the community garden and provided plants and a new bench so that the residents can sit and enjoy the garden. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Flintshire County Council Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Bernie Attridge, said:

“The standard of the work carried out is really good and I’d like to thank Flintshire’s Clerk of Works, Peter Bates, and our contractors Wates Living Space – their partnership working and commitment to our local communities really is appreciated and I’m sure residents will be very pleased with their “new” garden.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

David Morgan, Managing Director, Wates Living Space, commented:

“Flintshire County Council is really setting the standard for the improvement of local homes, and it’s very rewarding to witness the positive impact it is having on the local community. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Since we began working with Flintshire, we have been committed to identifying ways that we can positively impact the county. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Our work at the community garden in Connah’s Quay is a great example of the positive legacy we want to leave as part of our work in Flintshire. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We hope the garden is a source of enjoyment for many years to come.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
