Residents living in a retirement housing scheme in Leicestershire have been given a cash bonus by construction services firm J Tomlinson to give themselves a treat.
The company has recently replaced the plant room at Tom Eatough Court in Earl Shilton and decided to make a £500 donation to the residents of the sheltered housing development to spend on social activities.
“We’ve heard that the residents living at Tom Eatough Court do a lot of fund-raising for a range of good causes, so we thought it would be lovely for J Tomlinson to give them a treat, which they fully deserve,” said Dave Fisher, operations manager at J Tomlinson. “They were so welcoming to our team. Even though we undertook the work through the Christmas/Winter period and at times had to disrupt the heating and hot water, and we had workmen in and out, at no time did anyone complain, which made the works on site a pleasure to complete. We hope they enjoy the social activities that this donation will fund.”
Managed by Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Tom Eatough Court, on Ronald Toon Road, features 24 ground-floor flats. Within the complex there is a laundry room, guestroom, hairdressers, library, shower room and conservatory.
J Tomlinson recently installed a new modern plant room at the development to upgrade facilities.
Sharon Stacey, Director of Community Services at Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, said: “The work undertaken was to renew the communal heating boilers which are now controlled by a computerised ‘state of the art’ system, making them much more efficient.
“We are really pleased with how J Tomlinson interacted with tenants during the upgrade and with the standard of the completed work. Tenants were delighted at the contribution J Tomlinson made to their residents’ fund and are looking forward to spending the £500 for the benefit of all tenants.”
J Tomlinson provides a range of integrated building services which include construction, mechanical and electrical services (M&E), facilities management, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance and regeneration. It primarily operates across the East Midlands, West Midlands and Yorkshire.
