We provide a wide variety of one- and two-bedroomed comfortable accommodation, two of which are specifically designed for those with limited mobility. Residents benefit from independent living in an affordable and secure community. We are close to local shops and transport. Our beautiful and extensive grounds are available for residents to use and enjoy.
The Contributions for these properties are based on Equivalent Fair Rent advised by the District Valuer and currently range from £90 - £130 per week. Residents on low income are encouraged to apply for Housing Benefit.
I have been at the Almshouses for 48 years, working here at first then as a resident for last 25. Things have changed a lot, but for the better. The Trustees and Clerk are very helpful. There are older residents as well as younger ones. We are all friendly. We are so close to the town yet also the countryside.
There is a lovely feel to living here. It is close to the town and the people are all friendly.
