Town Trust Lends its Support

Our trustees and residents are delighted that the Town Trust has awarded a 'hardship grant' for the benefit of the residents of one of our almshouse charities.  

The Trust gave £1,000 towards the cost of secondary glazing for the front windows at The Mary Newland's Almshouses in Guild Street.  Although the windows have sealed double-glazed units, our property surveyor recommended that the addition of secondary glazing would be of great benefit - not only helping to save our residents' heating costs, but also reduce the noise of the traffic on the busy road outside. This improvement is of significant pertinence following the recent hikes in fuel prices.

On behalf of our residents, the trustees would like to say THANK YOU!
