Yardley Great Trust

Sheltered housing: Shard End

This development in Shard End, consisting of thirty, 1 bedroom flats and a residents' lounge, was built in 1986.The Residents often get together for social events in the spacious communal lounge, but there is no obligation to do so. Many of the residents have ‘green fingers’ and there is a very active gardening club who help not only to  make the scheme really attractive but also grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Residents have the reassuring presence of an on site scheme manager during office hours and every dwelling benefits from an alarm that is connected to a round the clock central control for out of hours emergencies. 24 hour video surveillance is also provided for extra reassurance.

Local shops, chemist and doctors are a short walk away but there is a also a bus service that stops outside the development and passes the local shops.
