Saltcoats sheltered housing breaks ground

Saltcoats sheltered housing breaks ground
An official ground-breaking ceremony has taken place in Saltcoats to mark the commencement of work to build a new sheltered housing complex at Canal Street, comprising 36 new homes.

This has seen existing substandard accommodation swept aside to allow creation of a range of one and two-bedroom properties in addition to a communal lounge, garden and community centre.

An on-site resident’s hub will offer a range of recreational activities including coffee mornings, lunch clubs and games.

The project forms part of an £11m investment in sheltered housing across Saltcoats, Stevenston and Ardrossan by the council.

Completion of the build, designed by North Ayrshire Council, is anticipated by summer 2018.

Christ almighty, the poor granny's of Saltcoats, living out their last days in Alcatraz.

StyleCouncil, I think you mean "grannies". Here's hoping you know more about architecture than you do about elementary English.
