Thrale Almshouse update

by Paul Lehmann
Earlier in the year, I wrote about the Thrale Charity’s project to redevelop the Thrale Alms-houses in Polworth Road, which had become very outdated. I’m delighted that after two years on site and £3million, the redevelopment work is completed, 17 residents have moved into their new homes, and in mid-October, we will be celebrating the reopening of the alms-houses with local MP Chuka Umunna.
