A housing boss is proving that actions speak louder than words by incorporating cleaning duties into his working week.

Michael Newey, chief executive at Broadland Housing Association, is joining other members of his team to ensure that ‘touch points’ in communal areas at the association’s sheltered housing schemes are sanitised daily during the coronavirus crisis.

He said: “These are extraordinary times, and we are starting to find the new normal.
