A warm welcome to our new tenants

We would like to welcome Natalie and Linford, one of the first couples to move into our brand new Waverley Gardens extension.

Natalie and Linford Duncan moved into a brand new two bedroom flat based in our Waverley Gardens extension after 35 years of living in their family home.

The pair have been married for 52 years, moving into the Lockleaze area of Bristol in 1985. After looking for a new apartment, the pair officially moved into their new home last month, and they couldn’t be happier.

Natalie said: “I love living at Waverley Gardens, we have the prettiest views all around our apartment and even though we don’t need care at the moment, we're in a place where we can receive it, no questions asked. It’s like the apartment is built for us, it’s just beautiful and we couldn’t ask for anything else. It’s a great place to live!”

Our Waverley Gardens extension build commenced in September 2019, designed to include communal spaces, shared gardens, and a secure community feel. Complete with a restaurant, hair salon, and onsite maintenance, the build is now officially open to welcome new tenants!

Linford said: “The employees here are brilliant and the other tenants are very friendly. There’s a huge communal lounge if you fancy getting out of the apartment and an onsite restaurant if we don't fancy cooking lunch or dinner. It’s given us a new lease of life living here and we couldn’t be happier!”

Christina Rees, Community Service Manager said: “It’s very exciting that we are now able to welcome new tenants to the site. Everyone who has come to live with us seems to be enjoying their new home. It’s great to have some new faces around and we are looking forward to welcoming new people with the properties that are available at the scheme too!”
