Fern moves next door to Dad!

Everybody needs good neighbours – and Fern Hudson couldn’t be happier with hers!

The 22-year-old has just moved into a first floor flat in Breedon the Hill, managed by Leicestershire Rural Housing Association – right next door to her dad!

It is the first time that Fern, who works as an Accounts Manager for British Gas, has had a home of her own.  But she says that having her dad so close has helped her to settle in really quickly and she already feels “100 per cent happy” in her new home.

She says: “My dad knew I really wanted a place of my own and when he found out the previous tenant was moving out, he kept encouraging me to apply.  Once I was offered the property, I was in within a couple of weeks!

“Everything is falling into place really well.  I’d been house-hunting in Breedon for a while but as it’s only a village, very little property comes up for rent and it’s so expensive.

“The flat has one bedroom and my own little garden, and I look out at the back towards my dad’s back garden!  I see him literally every day.  The village is lovely.

“I’m so pleased I made the move.  It’s just perfect for me.”
