A brand new lift has been installed in Pinner Court at St John's Wood and has already improved the lives of its residents.
96 year old resident Mary McGowan cut the ribbon for the official launch of the new lift. Mary said: "The new lift has changed my life, I have a bad hip and can't walk, but now I will be able to go down to the lounge after a year long absence, and enjoy a cup of tea with my neighbours”.
Another resident, Mr Patel (pictured) said: "This will make a big difference to me as I had a lot of difficulty carrying my groceries up the stairs, but I can now use the lift".
To celebrate the installation, residents from Pinner and Rothley Court were treated to tea and cakes in the lounge area. It was also the perfect opportunity for them to catch up with Karen Harris, scheme manager, CityWest Homes, Apollo staff and the social services team.
