New home is the icing on the cake!

New home is the icing on the cake!

Sandra Jarvis says she couldn’t be happier after moving into a brand new home in Croft.

Not only is Sandra close to friends and family, she is even able to walk to her full-time job in the village bakery.

She says: “I start work at 6am, I don’t drive and there isn’t a bus service at that time in the morning.

“I can’t just start work later because people begin coming into the shop at 7am, so it’s great to be able to walk there is less than five minutes.”

Sandra was thrilled to be offered one of six new properties which have recently been completed as Phase 2 of Leicestershire Rural Housing Association’s development in Poplars Road, Croft.  The properties include three houses and two bungalows for affordable rent and one house for shared ownership.

All the homes have been allocated to people with a local connection to Croft to enable more local people to stay in their village.

Sandra says: “I’ve always lived in Croft and four of my five sisters live here too.  I would have been very upset indeed to have had to move away from the village, but I couldn’t possibly have afforded to buy a property here.

“My new bungalow is fabulous!  I’ve got two bedrooms and a lovely big garden.

“I remember going to the meeting when they announced that the properties were going to be built but I had no idea then that I would end up living in one!

“I really do feel very fortunate.  I couldn’t be happier!”
