Amazing Upgrades To St Edmunds Facilities
St Edmund’s Charity have continued their progress of renewal and upgrade of the properties at Clement Royds Street and have introduced a further new property at Great Lee walk.
Flat 5 at 87 Clement Royds Street
Also known as “The Coach House”, merits special mention as adaptations have been made recognising the variety of needs of service users, many of whom have young families who welcome the opportunity of spending time with their parents/relatives. This property now includes an additional guest bedroom suitable for children. This converted attic space, which is accessed by a regular staircase offers a safe and inviting bedroom come playroom for younger family members.
Improvements have been designed to enhance and improve existing accommodation for the benefit of all Service Users, in particular, Flat 1 at 87 Clement Royds Street has had a sympathetic adapted bathroom fitted, suitable for persons with disabilities and Flat 3/87 benefits from a completely new fitted kitchen and appliances.
The new kitchen fitted at flat 6/110 Clement Royds Street is of a particularly high standard.
The property at Great Lee walk
Has also benefited from refurbishment throughout. This first floor flat is accessed via a communal staircase, the hallway has been ingenuously converted into an attractive yet functional utility room housing washer and dryer. The galley style kitchen has been completely refurbished to a very high standard, including split level hob and oven, as has the bedroom. However, the lounge, which is of a very good size is the flats’ most striking feature, with open aspect views onto countryside from two large windows, this room offers an extremely peaceful, pleasant place to relax and watch the world go by.
Charity principal Martyn Butterworth commented
“We recognise the need to keep our accommodations up to the highest standard and, where possible, adapt them to suit the needs of our Service Users, we are delighted to have been able to adapt one of our properties to cater for the needs of users with disabilities, this is an ongoing process and we will continue to carry out improvements wherever possible”. The property at Great Lee walk has been an interesting departure for us, being some distance away from our existing core premises on Clement Royds Street, however, we recognise that this different style of accommodation will be perfect for some Service Users wishing to exercise greater independent style living”
Senior housekeeper Clare Humphreys added
“We have been very careful to maintain an element of style within our refurbishments, making sure that the soft furnishings and fabrics complement each other and create an appropriate comfortable home with a relaxing atmosphere for our Service Users”
