On Wednesday 8 March Teviot Court, one of our sheltered housing developments in Hawick, celebrated its 25th birthday. Staff organised a fun filled day for tenants to mark the occasion, which kicked off with a toast to the service by the local Reverend Michael Scouler. This was followed by a delicious sit down lunch which was served by our staff at Teviot Ct.
After lunch our CEO, Nile Istephan and Director of Housing & Care Services, Amanda Miller said a few words praising the commitment and dedication of the staff and recognising how much the service is valued by tenants and the community as a whole.
After cake and a sit down, celebrations started again in the evening with a finger buffet and acts from well-known housing and care homes entertainer, Mike Hammer.
But the festivities didn’t stop there, the staff at Teviot Ct had arranged a special surprise for the tenants – an Elvis Presley impersonator, who ensured the celebrations finished with a bang!
A Brief History of Teviot Court
Situated on the site of the Old Co-op on the High Street, Teviot Court was formally opened on 13 March 1992 by former Eildon Chairman Lord Sanderson of Bowden. Throughout the 25 years, Eildon Housing Association has developed the housing support delivered, to ensure each tenant receives a high-quality service and has maintained and improved the physical fabric of the building. Teviot Court is an asset to Hawick playing an essential role in the social fabric of the town.
Working alongside internal and external agencies Teviot Court has excellent working relationships within Hawick and beyond. We aim to continue to maintain a high standard of support for the next 25 years and beyond.
