About

There are 22 flats in the main building, both one and two bedroom properties, and a further 20 properties attached to the building around the outside. Some flats have balconies which look onto the garden and some flats also have level access showers.

A lift and stairs provide access to all floors. We also have three stairlifts in various parts of Marjorie Waite Court.

All flats have a telephone point, television socket and central heating.

All the flats are connected to the community alarm system.

Facilities

The main building is fully covered by a fire alarm system with smoke detectors in all corridors, and each flat is fitted with a heat detector.

The majority of outside bungalows and flats have their own smoke alarms, which tenants are responsible for, and gas central heating systems, which are serviced annually.

Outside there is a very pleasant enclosed garden which catches the sun all year round with greenhouse, summerhouse and seating areas.

There is limited parking space for tenants.

A range of social activities take place in the communal lounge area, and we encourage tenants to set up new activities and groups according to your interests. Please contact the Housing Management Officer if you want to find out what is going on at the moment.
