Eastlight Community Homes name approved by shareholders

Eastlight Community Homes name approved by shareholders
28th May 2020 James Calnan

As a Community Gateway Association, Greenfields residents are invited to become shareholders and have a say in key decisions.

Shareholders were invited to take part in a Special General Meeting held on Thursday, 21 May. There was one resolution: to approve changing the name of the company to Eastlight Community Homes. The outcome was:

In Favour      405      80.4%

Against          99        19.6%

The result means that Greenfields Community Housing will become Eastlight Community Homes on 1 July 2020, when we merge with Colne Housing.

More information on Eastlight will be provided in residents’ G2G magazine in June. Residents’ terms and conditions, including their right to be a Shareholder, will not change following the merge.

It’s very encouraging to see so many shareholders show their support for the new name. We look forward to as many residents as possible getting involved in the months and years ahead and help shape the future of Eastlight Community Homes.
