Completion of the first phase of the latest housing development by Wirral Methodist Housing Association at Lee Court, Hoylake was brightened by the visit of the Mayor of Wirral on what was otherwise a showery day.
The Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Gerry Ellis, also represents the Ward in which the development is situated, on the site of the former engineering works of Heap & Partners, a long established firm who have moved to new premises in Birkenhead.
Accompanied by his wife, the Mayoress, the Mayor took tea with the first residents to move into the first eight flats designed for use by the elderly, before formally presenting a garden bench for all the residents to use in the communal rear garden on behalf of the Association.
The Mayor expressed satisfaction with the quality of the scheme and asked to be invited back to see how it develops.
The Association has worked to ensure that people with a local connection were allocated the property and also with Wirral Partnership Homes to assist them with their property decant programme.
