Tenants of a Durham Landlord have won big at the County Durham Partnership Environment Awards (26th November).

Working in partnership with staff from Durham City Homes, Durham County Council and Local Councillors the residents of Grape Lane have worked hard over the last two years to create a Gardening Group and tackle Anti-Social behaviour by improving their local neighbourhood.

John Longmoor (tenant) entered the group into the awards and at a glittering ceremony last night they were given an award in the Community Partnership category recognising their “outstanding contribution to the improvement of the quality and appearance of the local environment and efforts in strengthening community links”.

Jean Steel, Involvement Team leader at Durham City Homes said, “We were so pleased to attend the Environment Partnership Awards alongside the Grape Lane Group last night and were even more pleased when the Group won a Community Partnership award.

“We can only congratulate the group for all their success and wish them all the best for the future”
