Residents living in a sheltered scheme in Littleport are enjoying a £1.2m home makeover including new kitchens and bathrooms and a landscaped courtyard.
Beech Court in Parsons Lane is owned by Axiom Housing Association and provides 65 ground, first and second floor flats for vulnerable and elderly people.
As well as new kitchens and bathrooms the refurbishment works include a new communal kitchen and assisted bathroom, electrical upgrades and new lighting to all communal areas and flats.
The main entrance has also been revamped along with all the communal areas which have been freshly painted and fitted with new carpets.
The courtyard has been redeveloped to include landscaped areas and accessible footpaths.
Resident, Elsie Flack, 103, said: “The work team knew their job and they did it so well. They’re welcome back any time for a cup of tea.”
Mayor of Ely Cllr Lis Every and chair of Littleport Parish Council, Cllr Clive Webber, were special guests at an event held to mark the completion of the works.
