All flats have recently had new kitchens and new storage heating installed. The communal area boasts a newly modernised makeover, which is light and bright for residents to enjoy. There is also a laundry room, twin bed guest room and pretty communal grounds. The court is just a 10 minute walk to Whittlesey town centre and there are buses that go direct to here and Peterborough. There is a railway station, museum, leisure centre with swimming pool, library and plenty of shops and eating places.

Our Court Manager Service is an important and integral part of Housing & Care 21’s approach to supporting our residents. It is designed to offer support and security to the court and those residents on court who need it. The service is about promoting and encouraging individuals to maintain their independence in their own home.

Our Managers are also responsible for the day to day running of the court including looking after the Health & Safety, property management and resident engagement." Show less
