Welcome to PETRA
Farewell to Naomi
Our excellent part-time bookkeeper Naomi Cooper left us recently for pastures new. As warm and friendly as she was efficient with QuickBooks, Naomi will be missed by all worked with her. We wish you well, Naomi.
Annual Review 2018-19
We've just published our latest annual review. We'll be posting copies through everyone's door soon, but in the meantime you can read it here.
Sunday 15th July marked our 15th birthday, so PETRA organised and ran another of our Fun Days on the green. Thanks to everyone who helped make it a success. The weather was wonderful, the football (now England were out) only mildly distracting, and the event served to remind us of two important things: 1) Community is what we make of it, and 2) With PETRA, residents can, by their own efforts, make good things happen.
PETRA's Guide to
Rubbish and Recycling
Do you have trouble knowing what to put where? Then take a look at our new brochure, where all is explained.
Above: This is what happens when residents fail to dispose of their rubbish properly - a backlog of poorly-secured trash, much of it in the wrong place!
Please show pride in our estate by disposing of your rubbish properly.
Need help with computers?
Residents sometimes ask us for help with using computers. In fact, there is help available nearby.
ICT Skills Training
Both at the Betty Strathern Centre in Harold Hill and at the Mardyke Community Centre in Rainham,
ICT Skills Training provide free basic computer courses to local adult communities in and around East London and Essex.
Training ranges from the basics, such as how to turn on a computer, searching the Internet, creating and using emails, to more advanced accredited courses using the Microsoft Office programs. For the accredited courses, there would be a small charge towards the cost of your second qualification certification.
For more information, call 01708 524897, or email email@example.com
Help with forms?
Some PETRA Committee members and our Estate Manager, Caroline, have a wealth of experience in different areas. For example we can help if you are unsure how to:
- fill in a form
- write a CV
- write a formal letter
- write a reference
Come into the PETRA office and see if we can help you.
