Where would any country be without it's Residents?
|Happy residents make a happy country but it amazes me how much bullies, whether individuals, governments, corporations or any other group can make life so miserable and stressful particularly when making and keeping money is more important than people.
A residents association is a group that meets regularly to discuss housing, community or environmental matters affecting their block of flats, estate or houses. Residents could be made up of tenants, leaseholders or freeholders, although each resident may have their own particular problems based on whether they rent their home or own it either under a lease or freehold.
The point to remember is that ALL are residents collectively and should, therefore, include anyone - regardless of whether they rent or own their home. The main thing is that residents endeavour to work together to improve the physical conditions of where they live, campaign for better facilities or create or improve the sense of community in their area.
What affects one person (or several) can affect everyone in the block or area - at the same time - what better way to get to know the people around you, whether it is to interact socially or prevent crimes and anti-social behaviour.

Would you like to take someone to court but are put off by the jargon, the cost and the delay?
Perhaps you’re already locked in a stressful dispute with no resolution in sight?
Would you be interested in a one-day process which gives you control, but also means you should get closure by the end of the day?
Windfall Films wants to hear from parties at war for a pilot episode of a potential Channel 4 documentary series about a new dispute resolution process, which could benefit both sides and change the way disputes are resolved in the future.

BBC Two delves into the nation’s pest infested
homes with the help of 'The Ladykillers'
BBC Two has commissioned a new four-part series, The Ladykillers (working title), made by KEO Films. The series will follow three female pest controllers as they visit homes and businesses across the UK to help with their infestations. Using high-tech cameras and equipment, the series will show the pests as they have never been seen before, from bed bugs to rats, from wasps to foxes, and offer advice on how to get rid of them.
A house-proud nation, Britain’s homes are increasingly sanitised with shiny floors and carpets and immaculate kitchen surfaces. However, lurking beneath a seemingly glistening façade is a host of unsightly pests and bugs. And now, they are getting smarter – poison and traps are becoming ineffective as they build up resistance. More and more people are calling on pest control services to help reclaim their homes and in this series, pest controllers Janet Dixon, Imogen Levinson and Angela Chetter Sloan visit homes and businesses experiencing problems on a large scale, to help rid people of these unwanted guests.
At a time when so many are living on a knife-edge, losing your job or a serious illness could be all it takes to put your home at risk. Organisations like Shelter are fighting to keep a safety net that helps people get back on their feet. Watch their video to see Jamie’s story and to see why everyone needs a safety net.

This is obviously unfair and it's been bothering me and Teddy for some time. This Sunday we finally managed to get Otter Keeper to sit down and discuss the problem with us... more
