Mayflower showcases £3.6 million prefab refurb project

BOSTON Mayflower has hosted an event showcasing a £3.6 million reinvestment project for the community.

Taking place at Boston’s Fenside Manor on Wednesday, the housing association displayed its plans to see some of its prefab properties around the town refurbished with new kitchens, bathrooms and wiring upgrades.

A total of 69 homes will get refurbished including 52 in Carlton Road, 11 in Marsh Avenue, and six in Revesby Avenue.

Violet and Alan Bourn, who have lived in Carlton Road for 40 years, were among those who went to see the plans.

Violet said: “Our prefab is a lovely little place, I have always thought so and we love living there.

“When the work is finished in February they will be like new houses.”

She explained that they would also be able to pick the colour they wanted for the kitchen and the carpets they wanted.

Husband Alan added that Mayflower had always been good to the couple and had always sent someone out to make any repairs.

Boston Mayflower’s head of property services Martin Woods said: “This investment shows our commitment to the community.

“It will help to achieve our aims of creating and providing affordable homes in the area.

“The places where these homes are to be refurbished are already strong communities in themselves.

“Into the future, Boston Mayflower will continue to provide high quality accommodation in places people want to live.”
