ACORN Bristol have rallied in support of one of their members who was left without heating and hot water by her landlord over Christmas.
Fadumo, who lives in St Werburghs with her seven children and mother, said that she has suffered problems with her landlord for three years.
Her situation reached a crisis point in December when she was left for three weeks over Christmas with a broken boiler, on top of which her stove didn’t work, windows were broken and the house was affected by damp.
Fadumo said that she was encouraged to contact ACORN by a friend who told her that the community union would be able to help her.
On Monday, a small number of ACORN members spoke with the landlord and demanded that he fix the boiler, windows and stove within 24 hours. He did mend the boiler but the stove and windows remained broken.
