Welcome to Lyng
Tenants Home Insurance
Lyng Community Association as a landlord does not insure tenant’s furniture, belongings or decorations against theft, fire, vandalism and burst pipes. To assist tenants we have entered into a partnership with other social landlords in the area to provide tenant’s home insurance through Aviva a reputable insurance provider.
Tenants need to take out their own household insurance either with this special scheme through Aviva or by making their own arrangements.
The Association cannot guarantee that this Aviva scheme provides the cheapest insurance cover available, or that it provides the widest cover so tenants are recommended to seek
alternative quotations and choose the cover that best suits their needs.
Re-opening the Lyng Community Development Service.
As you may have seen the current lockdown is being eased and we are looking to restart our community services such as the Toddler Groups, 5-11 Club and Youth Club. We will make a full announcement in the near future but we may need to restrict the number of participants so we can maintain social distancing.
We hope to start our other services including social trips as soon as we are able and are planning to run our Traditional Community Trip to the seaside in the summer. This year we are going somewhere new – Llandudno in North Wales so please look out for an announcement on that in the next few weeks.
Here are reminders of past trips – Barry Island, Southport, Weston Super Mare and Brean
We usually take around 150 people on our Summer Trip and we’d really love to see any many residents as possible come along with their friends and neighbours.
