Willmott Dixon Partnerships’ Birmingham North team have helped elderly residents in the Handsworth area meet up and keep warm in the chilly weather by organising a soup group.
Held at the Farmers’ Walk Estate, the soup group brought local people together for a chat with neighbours and provided some much appreciated hot food.
Willmott Dixon Partnerships’ customer and community officer Jenny Jones said: “The residents are like a family unit and it’s nice for them to get together every now and then to discuss local issues. It was also an opportunity for us to get to know them
“It’s hard for some people to get out and about when the weather is cold, so it was a pleasure to hold a social event near to their homes.”
Esther Watson, one of the residents who attended said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the day out. The soup was lovely and warming on such a cold and wintry day, and it was a great opportunity to catch up with friends.”
