MP visits Kingswood housing scheme

Residents and staff at Falcon Court in Kingswood welcomed a visit by their local MP Chris Skidmore, on Friday. The visit, which was organised by Housing 21, gave Mr Skidmore, who is a member of the Health Select Committee, an opportunity to view the facilities and meet with residents at the housing scheme which was completed earlier this year.

Falcon Court is an extra care housing development for older people and consists of 40 one and two bedroom apartments. The scheme provides a range of communal facilities including a Wellbeing Centre. The scheme aims to allow people to live as independently as possible in an affordable home of their own.

Simon Bostock, regional operations director for Housing 21 said: “We’re delighted that Mr Skidmore was able to visit Falcon Court and meet with staff and residents.”
