Redwood House Langley Berks.
Welcome


Redwood House, is a residential block on Cheviot Road in the Langley area of Slough in Berkshire. we are a small and on the whole friendly community of Senior persons from many varied backgrounds. These days we live in what is described as Social Housing, these are what used to be described as council flats but I guess the powers that be thought that that didn't sound right, so there you go. for the most we enjoy living here, the buildings themselves being of an age when they built with bricks so are sound and well insulated. and for the most part the buildings services function well that is the lighting in the communal areas the lift, heating and hot water.
This website has been put together as an information resource for present and possible future residents, as we look toward a brighter tomorrow The site is maintained and edited by Havers.Com and is fully funded by them please feel free to email us at info@redwoodhouse.org

The Residents of Redwood House have benefited from quite a numbers of projects initiated by SBC.   

 

After our housing officer arranged for the tenant’s to have a safe place for the storage of mobility aids such as scooters, wheelchairs and mobility scooters the room door was fitted with a hydraulic closure device and no internal handle on the door making it almost impossible for the elderly residents to open the door, it then took several months to get a handle fitted at the same time the door was unable to be closed due to an I’ll fitted fire seal and no handle on the outside so as the door could not be pulled closed to be locked despite Osbornes’s having fitted a lock, this again has taken several months to try to get resolved and this is the best bit of this story. They sent a worker who changed the cylinder so now no one has a key but then he locked the room making it impossible for people to access their mobility aids. Isn’t that brilliant. Now after an entire week Osbornes’s still haven’t furnished access to the mobility room. I think this is disgusting and it’s a story that needs to be told, to show how they seem to have no shame. I will post an update to let you know when this farce has been resolved. I hope this embarrases someone at osbourne's

I should say I was lucky as my scooter wasn’t in the room when it was locked but others were not so lucky, but of course I have not been able to put my scooter away.

 

Dateline Tuesday 24/5/22 and we are still locked out of the mobility room, thats now over a week.

 

I will continue to update this blog that can be viewed by tenants SBC and any other interested

parties I.e. local Media servs and even Osbornes.
