Hundreds of teabags have been given out to residents in Eynesbury as part of an initiative to improve neighbourhoods.

Huntingdon-based social landlords the Luminus Group has launched the teabag challenge to find ways of bringing the community together.

Luminus staff knocked on residents' doors with a questionnaire asking them to prioritise their community concerns, ranging from dog fouling to lack of facilities for the elderly.

Everyone who took part was given teabags and was entered into a £200 prize draw.

Kelly Linay, Luminus communications officer, said: "We called it the Teabag Challenge because we wanted to play on the great British tradition of tea-lovers and we wanted to bring the neighbourhood together to discuss their local community issues."

The areas of most concern for the Eynsbury residents were insufficient activities for the elderly, and the lack of entertainment and leisure facilities.
