HELES TERRACE ALMSHOUSES
The Almshouses are historic buildings that have been modernised to a very high standard. There are thirty ground floor and thirty first floor self contained flats. All flats have their own bedroom, living room, fitted kitchen and bathroom. The Almshouses provide security and residents are encouraged to make friends and share a wider social life whilst maintaining their independence.
All flats have a new central heating and hot water system, which combined with full double glazing and insulation makes the properties very economical to run. There are also Smoke Detectors and ample raised power points. There is a guest room nearby that is available for use by family and friends.
The Almshouses were built by a charity founded by Mr Elize Hele. The Charity is administered by a voluntary board of Trustees. Day to day administration is carried out by a part-time Manager and Assistant who work from an office on the site.
There is a resident Warden who will deal with emergencies and maintenance problems. All flats are connected to the Emergency Alarm who provide an emergency response service outside of his working hours.
