Melin is not just about bricks and mortar; it is about engaging with residents, supporting communities and taking the opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives. We will continue to seek ways in which residents may have an opportunity to influence our services and have a voice in how these services are delivered.
We appreciate that our homes are situated within wider communities and we will continue to work with partners to support these communities.
Detailed below is a list of our engagement opportunities; these events are regularly updated and some of the details are yet to be confirmed. For information about any of these days please give us a call on 01495 745910.
The school holidays are in full swing and our Communities Team has a range of activities planned to bring a bit of Melin magic to our estates. Our ongoing successful fishing initiative continues into its 10th year with our great friends and partners from Merthyr Angling Club. We will again be visiting Redhill Lakes in Monmouth; a purpose built fishing facility on the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of August.
We will be returning to the Rockfield area of Monmouth providing family outreach activities in Cornwallis Way, Jordon Way, Primrose Close and others, where the Melin Bus will be onsite during the afternoons of 10th, 17th and 31st of August.
On the afternoon of 16th August the team will be providing an outreach family play session at Cae Nant in Cwmbran. We travel south to Newport on 17th August to support the Pill Community Clean Up day. Also on that day we’ve been invited to join our partners from the Hope Centre & Moorland Community Centre to take part in the Lliswerry Action Day.
The Volume, our youth forum, is meeting early evening on 23rd August so if you know of any young people who would like to join, just get in touch.
Lastly we are pleased to announce our sporting partnerships with Newport Gwent Dragons and Newport County will continue for the coming season. This is great news for many of our young people who benefit from the fantastic opportunities which both clubs offer.
