New Resident Drinks – Waterman’s View residents
With just over 40 homes occupied at Waterman’s View by the end of June 2017, it was time for the first “New resident drinks”. Around 20 of us gathered at the Bull at Barkham pub on a lovely sunny July evening to meet neighbours over a glass of wine or beer.
It was a great evening with a few residents discovering they already knew each other from former lives and many others chatting about mutual interests with those who lived just around the corner. A couple of streets had already started getting to know their neighbours and it was great to hear that impromptu barbeques and drinks had been organised.
The WBC communities’ team were on hand to answer any queries on local services and Becky Eytle, Community Mobiliser was able to follow up on queries regarding the development and field suggestions for further social occasions. The next social event will be held in the autumn so please keep an eye on this site.
