HRH The Duke of Kent to visit veteran community-build scheme
Leading national housing association, Stonewater will be welcoming HRH The Duke of Kent to its ground-breaking veteran community-build scheme, Noden’s Mews in Leominster.
Working in partnership with Herefordshire Council, local contractor J Harper & Son Ltd and veterans’ charity Alabaré, Stonewater completed the 19-home scheme in December 2020.
HRH The Duke of Kent will be visiting on the morning of Thursday 19th May to meet the partners involved in the scheme along with some of the veterans that were involved in building the homes that they now live in.
Six previously homeless veterans took part in the project working alongside the development’s contractor to gain valuable, transferable skills to improve their employment opportunities. At the end of the project each veteran involved was provided with a secure new affordable home for themselves and their families to rent.
