This year’s tenant’s conference took place on Saturday 28th October at the Corrie Centre, Cardenden and focused on developing ways Ore Valley with tenant’s help could strengthen the communities we work and live in.

Colin McInnes, our Housing Manager, opened up the day with group discussions on annual performance results for reporting year 2016/17 with each group providing great ideas to improve how we perform and how we engage with tenants on developing service improvements.

Donald Grieve delivered an interesting overview of the services provided by the Curnie Club, a new initiative born of the need to tackle isolation and loneliness within communities in Fife. If you or anyone you know is affected by isolation and loneliness and you think the Curnie Club can help, you can contact them by calling Donald Grieve on 07748631417 or Alison McKay on 07748631648, or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Naomi Breeze, a one women performer, wrapped up the day with a fantastic play called The Little Things, an informative and emotive piece that demonstrated how offering a little help to strangers, neighbours or loved ones can make a big difference. She then shook us all up with some sit down exercises and a group selfie!

The day was full of fantastic discussion and we received lots of positive ideas and feedback from tenants that attended. We now need some time to digest these ideas but we are hoping to announce a new and exciting community initiative for 2018 so watch this space! 

We greatly value the views of tenants and would like to ensure that these are taken into account when planning future events. We would therefore be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete the Tenant's Conference feedback survey below:
