Contractors who completed the transformation of a WDH independent living scheme returned with a £500 donation to the residents’ social fund.
Church Court Independent Living Scheme in Ossett was given a major facelift as part of an ongoing programme of improvements to tenants’ homes.
The majority of tenants moved out while the 44 homes, including six flats outside the main complex, were redeveloped over the past year. When they returned they found their new lounge flooded with light thanks to new full length windows and skylights.
WDH Independent Living Schemes Improvements Manager Elaine Armitage said: “I think this is a beautiful space and everyone loved working on it.”
Resident Edward Dexter, who has lived at Church Court for five years, added: “Everything is first class.”
The work was overseen by WDH ILS Improvements Delivery Site Manager Lee Palmer. He gave Kiel Ward, of KSW Engineering in Wakefield, a tour of the completed scheme to show him the success of the project.
Mr Ward then handed over £500 (£200 from KSW Engineering, £200 from Complete Access Scaffolding of Wakefield, and £50 each from Stephen Whittaker Carpets of Hemsworth and Malden Roofing Contractors of Sheffield) to the residents toward their social fund.
Church Court (above) is the ninth WDH independent living scheme to be improved, offering older and vulnerable tenants the highest standard of accommodation while helping them maintain their independence.
