Community volunteer and Vice-Chair Jean Birkett said the organisation was about building communities.
"Good quality affordable homes are just the starting point for a great community. We are here to build community spirit. Let the games begin!"
The not for profit organisation rents out low cost homes and build new affordable accommodation to meet the growing needs of the local community – helping to plug the gap between wages and house prices.
