OLLERTON’S De Lacy Court which was originally a Supported Housing call centre has been refurbished into a new flat conversion and welcomed its first tenant.
Janet Jolly, who previously lived at Alder Grove in New Ollerton and suffers with mobility issues, had been desperately keen to move into a larger property and somewhere close to her parents, who also live at De Lacy Court.
Janet said: “I’m delighted with my new flat. It is so much larger than where I lived before and it is fantastic that I’ll be living near my parents, so I can help out when they need me.
“It has everything that I ever wanted, including a wet room, plus a brand new kitchen and it has been redecorated - I couldn’t have asked for more.”
Newark and Sherwood Homes recognises that there was a shortfall in housing stock throughout the area, especially properties that are suitable for those with less mobility.
The flat includes a level access shower for ease of bathing and a revised kitchen layout to suit a disabled person.
Sue Rockley, housing officer for Newark and Sherwood Homes, said: “It is always great to see a tenant who is so excited about moving into a new home. The flat should meet Janet’s needs perfectly – we hope she has many happy years here.”
