Hednesford retirement scheme celebrates £40k refurbishment
Residents at a retirement housing scheme in Hednesford enjoyed a special party to celebrate a major refurbishment of the property.
People living at Lord Cromwell Court in Bradford Street got together for tea, cake and a natter to mark the completion of the work. There was also an aromatherapist on hand to pamper the residents.
Work carried out at the court cost £40,000 and includes a redecoration of communal area including the residents lounge, kitchen, laundry and the conversion of the guest room to a meeting/reading room.
Court Manager Zoe Maunders said: “The court looks wonderful now, and the residents are really proud to call it home”.
“The work took three months, and obviously there was some inconvenience caused to the residents, so we wanted to do something to say thank you for their patience and cooperation.
“It was a really nice day, and really highlighted the fantastic community spirit we have here at Lord Cromwell Court now.”
The refurbishment of Lord Cromwell Court is part of a £135m investment programme in the organisation’s housing stock around the country, to make sure it is providing quality homes for older people now and into the future.
James McCarthy, Housing & Care 21’s Director of Retirement Housing, was a special guest at the party. He said: “It is always great to visit a scheme like Lord Cromwell Court where the residents are seeing first-hand the benefits of the refurbishment programme, and are so proud to call it their home.
“You can tell there's a strong sense of community at the scheme, it's very welcoming and friendly.”
