On 26th July, the Rt. Hon. Sir Mike Penning MP officiated at the opening of West Herts Homes new office in Hemel Hempstead. In addition to Sir Mike, guests at the event included the Mayor of Dacorum, the Leader of Dacorum Borough Council, and the Cabinet members for Housing from the City and District of St. Albans, and Hertsmere Borough Council.
West Herts Homes operates in St. Albans, Dacorum, Hertsmere, Watford, and the London Borough of Barnet, and delivers excellent services that saw the association listed as one of the Top 50 Landlords in the UK in 2018.
Sir Mike Penning said: “I am pleased to welcome another new business locating in Hemel Hempstead. This is a positive sign that businesses have confidence in our town and prepared to invest in the area.
“With their focus on people who need support in the community West Herts Homes will fulfil a vital role in the area. I wish them every success.”
Paul Eastwood, Chief Executive at West Herts Homes, responded - “As a housing association with deep roots in the local community we were delighted to have Sir Mike with us today. We are well known for our caring and person-centred approach to housing management, and from our new base we intend to work ever more closely with our local authority partners to help provide more high quality homes for people in need”.
