Kier Housing Maintenance is helping residents enjoy more of the garden at Muir Housing Association’s McCartney House sheltered housing scheme in Godmanchester by creating a new pathway enabling those with mobility issues to access all areas of the colourful space.

The pathway is just part of a project by Kier to refresh the garden, with a host of other work already taking place, which reflects the positive difference it wants to make for Muir residents overall.

Mark Hopkins, Contract Manager at Kier Housing Maintenance said: “We are really excited to be working on this first project with Muir, delivering added value for the residents at McCartney House,”.

“Making a positive impact, above and beyond the day job in the communities we work in is really important to Kier”.

Muir has welcomed the added investment Kier is bringing to the scheme which also includes relaying the patio area and building new raised flower beds around it, cutting back overgrown shrubs, painting the pergola and giving the garden a general tidy up.

Simon Rudkin, Muir’s Community Housing Manager for the East said: “We’re delighted that all residents will be able to enjoy as much of the garden as possible thanks to the great improvements Kier are making at McCartney House.

“It’s fantastic that Kier recognise the opportunity to help more residents make the most of the scheme’s gorgeous garden area and everyone is looking forward to seeing the improvements unfold.”

Kier Housing Maintenance is the repairs and maintenance provider for Muir’s East Region.
