Sometimes the best conversations start when people are relaxed and having fun.
With this in mind, Housing New Zealand hosted a special morning tea for their tenants in Otahuhu recently.
13 members of the Housing New Zealand Ellerslie team treated 70 tenants to morning tea, foot massages, facials, nails, tenpin bowling and free haircuts from a barber.
The team also took the opportunity to chat to their tenants and find out how they are going in a relaxed setting.
"We’ve got some lovely tenants and we all appreciate a bit of pampering every now and then. So we thought a pamper morning was a good way to give back and spend some time with the people we house. The morning went really well and my team really enjoyed giving back," says Area Manager, John Walker.
"And thanks to this event we now know there are some champion tenpin bowlers in our area so we might have to go back and give them a rematch!"
