20 for 20

20 for 20

This year we are celebrating 20 years of Havebury.

To celebrate this, we are doing 20 activities for our 20th year and we would like you to be involved. You can find out more and register your interest below for some of these events.

On the 22 June 2002, the transfer of homes from St Edmundsbury council was completed and that is where we, as Havebury Housing Partnership, started our journey.

Here are details of the events we are hosting and how you can register your interest to find out more.

  • Tenant Awards

    On the 30 May 2022, we are launching our Tenant Awards, where we will ask you to nominate fellow tenants in the following categories;


    • Tenant of the year

    • Community of the year

    • Neighbour of the year

    • Young person of the year


    The winner of each category will win a £100 amazon voucher, as well as a £100 donation to a charity of their choice.

    The closing date for submissions will be 1 September 2022, with the winners being selected by our board members on 20 September 2022.

    You can make your nomination using the form below;

  • Your stories

    If you have been with us for 20 years we would love to hear from you, and even if you haven’t we would still love to hear your stories.

    How have you made your house a home? Do you have any special memories or memorable moments that happened in your home? Any before and after pictures of adaptations or work you have done in the garden?

    Three stories will be picked at random to win a £50 voucher each.

    Please email any stories to communications@havebury.com

  • Celebrations

    Over the summer, we will be delivering hampers to 5 lucky households chosen at random, so you can celebrate our 20th year with us.

    We are also planning to transform the courtyard garden at Tayfen House, our homeless hostel in Bury St Edmunds. We look forward to sharing our progress with you.

    Do you have any 20th milestones this year? Birthdays, anniversaries, for example we would love to hear about them!

    You can send us photos and any details to communications@havebury.com

    We would love to meet your furry friends!

    Lucy Adams, resident engagement officer, is hosting a ‘dog day’ at Go Off Lead in Culford, Bury St Edmunds on Tuesday 14 June between 10.30am and 1.30pm.

    She would love to see as many people there as possible. To register your interest, please send an email to residentinvolvement@havebury.com

    As well as members of our teams attending, we will also be working in partnership with West Suffolk Council and Idverde, as well as other projects to help your community look its best. We will be available to answer any queries on our services, with the council available to talk to you about recycling, larger waste removal, fly-tipping and more. We look forward to seeing you there!

    On the day there will be a free ice cream for any volunteers.
