A Nottingham housing association has named an apartment block after an employee who recently passed away.

asra Housing Group held a dedication ceremony at Stonebridge Park in memory of Elliot Goodwin who worked as an admin support before he died at the young age of 26.

The block of apartments on St Matthias Road has now been named ‘Elliot Goodwin House’ to highlight the apprentice’s work.

Anita McDermott, asra's sales and marketing officer, said: "He has been missed so much since his passing in January.

"I worked day-to-day alongside Elliot, his future held a lot of promise and it's very sad that he wasn't able to fulfil his potential."

He worked with the Sales, Marketing and Development teams, after his position was provided by an apprenticeship fund from the Stonebridge Park regeneration project.

Elliot’s work involved supporting the teams as they worked on the regeneration programme.

Matt Cooney, asra's chief executive, said: "Here at asra Housing Group, we look after and value our employees. Elliot was an important part of the regeneration team, helping to build an integral part of Stonebridge Park.

"His contribution to the association will be recognised thanks to naming the building, and his name certainly won’t be forgotten."
