Affordable rented homes help a family to get on the housing ladder

SWHS former tenants, Martyn Desborough & Catherine Wookey who lived in one of our 2 bedroom chalet style houses at Josephs Pound, Rooksbridge, Somerset have recently purchased their own home in Burnham-on-Sea as first time buyers.

Martyn & Catherine became tenants of the Society on the 16th June 2014 having previously living with a parent along with their 6 month old daughter Lilly; they now have a son called Archie who will be 2 in September.

Martyn & Catherine said that “ being able to rent the Society’s property at an affordable rent, helped us to save the money required for the deposit on our new home. We will always be thankful for the help and assistance provided by the Society over the last 3 years”
