Domestic (appliance) bliss

Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end

Salix Homes neighbours, Colin and Kelly, lived next door to each other on Pevensey Road on the Duchy Estate. It wasn’t long before romance blossomed and the couple started dating.

When Emanuel Whittaker came along to start the works to their homes, the site team agreed  not to work on both their properties at the same time, despite the fact that they were next door and would have made for an easier programme for the trades.

The couple were already making plans to get married. But they couldn’t decide which property they would eventually move into together as their marital home, as they each preferred their own.

Kelly and Colin tied the knot in the summer, having invited Resident Liaison Officer Garry Holt, as he had been so supportive and helpful. Once the works to their respective homes had been completed, they settled in together at one of the properties and handed the other back to Salix.

But then their first domestic dilemma presented itself… each had their own different kitchen appliances, and the kitchen in their marital home was designed without a tumble dryer space as the resident didn’t own one, whilst his fiancée did. So Emanuel Whittaker decided to help out.  The site team called round and core drilled a new dryer vent so the appliance could be used.
