The tenants hold a regular games afternoon on a Thursday and had previously had access to a Housing 21’s Kurling set. Violet Hill Court wanted to purchase their own Kurling set as the Housing 21 one was often in use by other housing schemes.
Kurling has been very popular and is helping the tenants to be more active. Prior to the purchase of the Kurling set, the tenants would sit and play Bingo. The games afternoons are thriving and are especially busy on the damper days.
Most of the 52 tenants at Violet Hill Court have benefitted from using the Kurling Set. It has enabled them to Socialise and be more active which has helped them to improve their physical and mental wellbeing as well as helping to reduce social isolation.
