Town’s Ambassador lends a hand at new project
Huddersfield Town’s Club Ambassador Andy Booth has officially opened a new supported housing development in Newsome, Huddersfield.
Kings Mill Court offers a new home for adults with complex needs and learning disabilities and although the first tenants moved in during April 2013, Boothy was on hand to cut the ribbon at the official opening ceremony recently.
The newly built project features 12 self-contained apartments, four of which have been fully adapted for people with physical disabilities. A spacious communal kitchen and lounge have also been incorporated, providing room for dining, relaxing and social gatherings.
Connect Housing built the affordable housing scheme with support from Kirklees Council Adult Social Services and in partnership with St. Anne’s Community Services, who provide 24-hour care at the scheme.
Club Ambassador Andy told htafc.com:
“This new supported housing development is a fantastic facility, especially as it houses people from the local area.
“I was honoured to be a part of the official opening ceremony and it was great to meet the residents on the day, many of whom were really knowledgeable about Huddersfield Town!”
