Dragons descend on Pine Court for Chinese New Year celebrations

Wednesday 22nd of February 2017

Pine Court Housing Association celebrated their heritage in style with a Chinese New Year celebration at the Pagoda Arts Centre in Liverpool City Centre on 1st February 2017.


Guests, including several Pine Court board members and staff from across The Sovini Group, watched performances from the Chinese culture centre’s musicians and dancers, as well as Chinese Dragon Dancing and martial arts performances from Liverpool Hung Gar Kung Fu Friendship Association.


The event, now in its fifth year, gives customers the opportunity to ‘have their say’ on the services provided, including addressing any neighborhood issues.


The organisation, who describe themselves as ‘ambassadors for the local Chinese community’, believe in making an active contribution to cultural events which promote social, economic and cultural cohesion.


During the Chinese New Year celebration event, customers are given the opportunity to get involved and to play their part in shaping the types of services delivered. It also provides the opportunity for the organisation to thank their existing involved residents for their support throughout the year.


David Brown, Director of Operations at Pine Court, said: “This event is now in its fifth year and our customers all thoroughly enjoyed the celebrations. It’s great to get together to celebrate our heritage and to strengthen the links we have with the local community. We have gained some valuable feedback from residents following the event, with the support of our bi-lingual staff. We look forward to more of those customers becoming involved in helping shape the future of the organisation over the coming year
