Marc Millingham, Estates Housing Officer and Laverne Dubois, Senior Sheltered Housing Officer recently helped our Sheltered Housing residents to organise a party to celebrate the 60th Jamaican Independence Day on the 6th August 2022.

Laverne said, “Congratulations to sheltered tenants Terry, Monica, Christopher, Jacqueline and Paul in organising this year’s celebration. 
Following a welcome introduction form the Chair of Tuntum’s Board, Junior Hemans, the celebration started with tributes from two Nottingham-based authors Norma Gregory (former Tuntum employee) and Pitman Brown.

Party-goers played dominoes whilst enjoying the sounds of the Caribbean, played by a DJ, whilst feasting on authentic dishes washed down with traditional fruit and pineapple punch prepared by residents.”

The Nottingham Post covered the story in an article you can read here.

Thanks to our residents and staff who made this happen.
