Newlon Star Awards ceremony held

28th Oct 2015

Towards the end of 2015 we held our first ever resident involvement awards – the Newlon Star Awards.

The awards recognise exceptional people who have made a difference to the lives of other residents by getting involved with Newlon or Outward, or helping us improve how we are run. This could include organising a Residents Association or community event, or being an active member of one of our Residents’ groups.

_G208761A judging panel of residents, Newlon staff and a Board member considered the many nominations received for the six categories, and decided on the winners.

A ceremony and dinner was held at Tottenham Town Hall on Friday 23rd October 2015, where the winners were presented with their awards. The event also included live entertainment.

The winners were:

  • Blossom Shakespeare and Olufunke Osinaike won the Resident Group of the Year award for their work in our Complaints Panel

  • Pat Coetzhee won the Outward Customer Involvement award
  • John Sadeghipoor won the Resident of the Year award
