18 June 2015
103-year-old Winnie Crosby has cut a celebratory cake to mark the completion of a major refurbishment project at Cedar Court Extra Care housing estate in Scarborough.
Dozens of residents from the Hanover Housing Association estate were joined by local dignitaries, including the Mayor of Scarborough, Councillor Tom Fox, to celebrate the completion of the estate’s full £360,000 refurbishment project.
Cedar Court has seen a significant transformation over the last few months. A newly painted and refurbished dining room and communal lounge have enhanced the look and feel of the development, making the building a more attractive place to live.
New sensory lighting and electrical fittings have vastly improved the energy efficiency of the building and have saved residents a significant amount of money on their electricity bills.
Tom Brown, Director of Extra Care and Services, Hanover Housing Association says: ‘This impressive retrofit programme is the result of meticulous planning, creativity and fantastic partnership working. We believe these improvements will benefit residents now and into the future, making Cedar Court an attractive and affordable place to live.’
Winnie Crosby adds: ’I am really pleased with the work by Hanover and its contractors. They have given our estate a stunning facelift which I am very proud of. Cedar Court was always a nice place to live – and now it’s even better!’
