SAFFRON Walden's almshouses have been given a new lease of life thanks to a programme of restoration work.
The King Edward VI and Rev Joseph Prime Almshouse Charity provides accommodation for more than 50 people in the town, but their bungalows and apartments were in desperate need of a makeover.
In 2007 the charity's trustees commissioned a report on the state of the buildings and, following its completion, committed themselves to an expensive five-year restoration plan.
The trustees and residents are delighted that phase two of the plan has now been completed on schedule and a number of the properties have been equipped with modern bathrooms and kitchens.
If any readers know of anyone who would benefit from a home at the almshouses, please contact the clerk to the trustees Alison Maslen on 01799 513914, or leave a message and contact details.
