Tenants’ newsletter is the best

Have your say

A NEWSLETTER produced for housing association tenants has been named the best in the region.

Chester-le-Street-based Cestria Community Housing’s Courier magazine won gold in the External Publications category at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ North East PRide Awards.

The quarterly newsletter, designed by PR agency IPB Communications, is read by more than 4,000 tenants.

A readers’ group has been set up to allow tenants to decide which articles appear in upcoming issues and to give their seal of approval to each edition before publication.

Chief executive Paul Fiddaman said: “This is a fantastic achievement and great recognition for all our staff and the team at IPB who have worked together to produce these two projects.”
