Following the recent tenant election ballot, Willow Park, now part of Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG), is delighted to welcome two new tenant Board members, Susan Loose and Sue Morris, as well as Martin Williams who was re-elected onto the Willow Park Board.
Susan Loose has lived in Benchill for 42 years and has been actively involved with Willow Park for a number of years. She is secretary of the Benchill Community Garden Tool Hire Services and knows the area very well. Susan said, “I hope to put my experience and knowledge of the area to good use by providing a tenant voice for the Willow Park Board.”
Sue Morris is passionate about the benefits of social housing and has substantial knowledge of supporting community groups, volunteers and the charitable sector. She has lived in Wythenshawe for 29 years and said, “I am delighted to have been elected and hope to become a valuable member of the Willow Park Board. I am particularly keen to support their work and projects to provide opportunities for our future generations.”
Martin Williams has already served 3 years on the Willow Park Board. He said, “It has been a great privilege to represent tenants and be part of the decision-making process. I want to continue to work with my fellow Board members for the benefit of our community.”
Group Chief Executive for Wythenshawe Community Housing Group, Nigel Wilson, said: “We are delighted to welcome Susan and Sue to the Board and welcome back Martin. Between them they all have great experience, knowledge and passion for our community. We also want to thank fellow candidates, David McKeever and Terrence Benyon, for their enthusiastic interest in these roles, and Dennis Finnegan and Graham Loose who have stepped down from the Board.
“Tenants and community investment in Wythenshawe is at the heart of our vision and the Willow Park and Parkway Green Boards will continue to work together to make Wythenshawe a community where people choose to live and work and have pride in their homes and services.”
