Evergreens ever better
BOSTON'S biggest provider of social housing, Boston Mayflower, has completed a £1.5 million investment project in Butterwick.
The housing association refurbished The Evergreens, its sheltered-housing building which now contains 21 modern flats.
The project incorporated many elements which made Mayflower's Mayfields building, in Broadfield Lane, Boston, such a success.
Such features include security cameras for residents to see who is at their door, bigger rooms, widened doorways and back-lit light switches.
Martin Woods, Boston Mayflower's Head of Property Services, said: "The work done at The Evergreens is a continuation of our efforts to help older and vulnerable people to live independently.
"The refurbishment both helps to extend the life of the accommodation there and maintain the sustainability of the local community."
The flats, which are solely for elderly and vulnerable people, have been fitted with many new features - including more advanced security measures and en-suite bathrooms.
Further improvements in and around the building include better access for disabled people, more efficient heating, and energy-saving lights throughout the building.
Two flats on the ground floor are specifically for wheelchair users, with kitchen cupboards on brackets so units can be raised or lowered as required.
