Long term plans to turn a derelict cafe and warden’s house into eight 1-bedroom homes for single ex-Service persons in Morden, is progressing well on site. The homes will be in a U-shaped courtyard arrangement and be named “Parry Court”, after Mr John Parry, past Chairman of Haig Trustees from 2001 – 2005, and Trustee from 1992.
Prior to Christmas 2016 the site was cleared and prepared with foundations for the buildings. Over 60% of the substructure has now been completed and is expected to be finished by week commencing 27th March 2017. Upon completion, the ground floor slab will be laid. Following completion of these groundwork’s, the brick and block work of the new buildings will commence. The expected completion and occupation date for the new homes is December 2017.
