Locals who helped to shape new over 55s’ housing in Sheffield cut into a cake to mark their visit to see how the homes are progressing.

Arbourthorne Steering Group dropped in on the new £6.5m development of 52 apartments and four bungalows on Errington Close.

The bungalows have been designed for people with mobility issues, and the roofs will be partially planted with sedum plants to absorb rainwater and attract butterflies and bees.

Group member Lesley Boulby said: “It has been great to be involved in this project from the very start and to see the homes being created from the ground up. We had a great time looking around and also meeting the apprentices and workers who are helping to build these new homes.”

The new homes, due for completion next spring, are being built by Sanctuary with Sheffield Council, part funded by the Homes and Communities Agency.
