As part of the ongoing 30 Year Birthday Celebrations for Barrhead Housing Association they asked for resident’s feedback on how this event should be celebrated, and some residents asked for the option of free rent.

A competition was therefore opened in spring this year for any resident to submit an entry to receive a week’s free rent in August 2016, and the closing date was Thursday 30th June 2016.

5 lucky winners will be drawn from a hat each week in August and the first winner picked was Mr Mathers of Barrhead.  He went along to Barrhead offices to receive his prize, stating he was

“absolutely delighted to have won.  I am currently doing up my daughter’s bedroom so this money will come in very handy to buy some furniture, as long as the colour is pink!”

Mr Mather’s daughter came along on the day to help him collect his cheque and is excited about her new pink bedroom.

Barrhead Housing will be in touch with the 4 other lucky winners over the course of August.
