Prinknash Court residents bury a time capsule
Residents of Prinknash Court in Yate have celebrated the completion of the major £776k refurbishment works to their homes by Oakland Construction, by burying a time capsule full of personal photos and memories.
The residents donated items which were created at an event to mark completion of the building’s £716k modernisation. At the event, nearly 50 people watched 90 – year- old Claudine, who has lived at Prinknash for over 25 years, cut a ribbon and declare the scheme “officially complete”.
This was the first Merlin Housing Society scheme to be remodelled under its £15 million investment programme to update its older people’s housing. Dave Milner, the Project Manager for Merlin, said “We now look forward to the remodelling and refurbishment of the second scheme at Ware Court in Winterbourne”. Oakland Construction were subsequently award this next project.
