Tenant meetings

We hold tenants meeting every two months to share all ideas and thoughts that tenants may have to help make sure that The Glebe suits the needs of everyone.

The social committee meets monthly.

The Glebe lies within the area covered by Dunnington Residents' Association, and all tenants are welcome to attend these monthly meetings. These are held in the Glebe on the 3rd Tuesday in the month at 2pm.
