The team ethic that underpins so much of the work we do as a Council came to the fore at the weekend as we dealt with an incident at Beachview Court.
A leak caused by a fractured pipe in the roof water tank affected the lifts and stairwells at the property, with water supplies to householders interrupted as repairs were carried out and other disruption in and around the building.
Although the initial incident happened on Friday, the response carried on through the weekend both in terms of housing staff ensuring residents were reassured and given the care and attention they needed as well as from building services colleagues who were put to work restoring services in the buildings.
Colin Low, Ian Cowling and Paul Tytler were amongst those who coordinated the effort, with Richard Sweetnam on duty in his role as Duty Emergency Response Coordinator, and many more also involved on the frontline.
Can I pass on a huge thanks to all those who were part of the cross-function team who made sure a testing situation was managed in a calm, professional and caring manner. I know residents of the building appreciated everything that was done for them.
