Fun on the Field swings into action

1st June 2015

Fun on the Field Milton Street Play area opens

New play equipment officially swung into action on Wednesday 27th May – a day of celebration in Penrith when the Milton Street Play area was officially opened. A group of Penrith residents came together with Eden Housing Association (EHA) and Inspira to make a difference to the Milton Street Play area in the town. They set up the ‘Fun on the Field’ committee which raised £44,000 to improve the play equipment and area for youngsters. The eight new pieces of equipment have been installed and the school holiday created the perfect opportunity to mark the official launch.  See below link for full press release.

The next swathe of changes to the Welfare Reform system started rolling out six weeks ago and already they are causing concern and anxiety for some people. The new ‘Universal Credit’ brings together six benefits and tax credits and replaces them with a single monthly payment, paid directly to the customer who now becomes responsible for paying their own rent. Anticipating issues and questions from Eden residents, Eden Housing Association has developed a series of training and support events called ‘Benefit Matters’.
