Other agencies, such as councils and schools, were there, and it was great to get out and about after a few years of Covid-19 restrictions.
You also agreed, with one resident explaining:
“It’s been nice to break down the barrier between tenant and landlord and work together for a purpose and to see the local schools involved. It just shows how much Havebury care”.

We’re running more community days this summer.
Our first event will be at the Leiston Centre, Clements Est, Haverhill CB9 8JJ, on Thursday, 25 May, between 10.30 am and 2 pm.
What will we be doing?
We’ll be litter-picking and planting flowers with the allotment group from Haverhill. We will also be on hand to discuss any questions or issues you have with your neighbourhood or your home, and we can also give help and advice about your tenancy, income or benefits.
Who else will be there?
