The local Housing Officer for the area, Ellen Megarry, was happy to present Mrs Moore with the cheque for £200 at her home.
Housing News winner
Marion Moore is this year’s winner of our competition, which we ran in the annual Housing News magazine sent out to all tenants.
Gordon Reilly, our local manager for the Shankill area of West Belfast, said:
“The Housing News magazine was first published 25 years ago for all our tenants across Northern Ireland, and we want to give it a brand new name. The magazine is produced yearly to tell our customers about the housing services we provide, how we performed and the various initiatives in their area. Mrs Moore’s entry, Streets Ahead, was selected as the best and most appropriate from the many suggestions we received.”
Mrs Moore, from the Shankill area of West Belfast, was delighted to win £200 towards her heating costs. She has been a tenant for over 50 years and is very happy with the gas heating in her home. Speaking with her in her home, she explained how she came up with the name:
“I like to read a lot, and was looking at the tenant magazine whilst watching the workmen putting the gas heating into a tenant’s home across the street. I just thought they (the Housing Executive) were streets ahead keeping their homes up to date. It came to me as easy as that!”
