Ashleigh Building are currently delivering a total of 157nr affordable housing units for Cunninghame Housing Association Ltd over two separate sites in Annan.
Our site at high street in Annan is a total of 27nr affordable housing units, with the first phase completed and handed over earlier this year. MSP Kevin Stewart attended the opening ceremony in 25th February 2020, and we are currently on-site refurbishing the 5 remaining units.
The second site is based at Hallmeadow in Annan where we are delivering a total of 130nr affordable units, which started on the 6th July 2020.
On all of our projects we seek to involve and enhance communities. We work closely with local schools, community groups and sports associations. Our client Cunninghame Housing Association Ltd was recently contacted by
Hazel Thompson from Kate’s Kitchen, who was looking for a site cabin that could be up-cycled and used by their volunteer gardeners for their innovative garden project.
Kate’s Kitchen is a charity organisation based in Annan, who operate a café for people within the community.
Their main objectives are:
- To provide good wholesome cooked meals, especially to the homeless and vulnerable members of the local community.
- To offer a welcoming environment and the opportunity for regular support and human interaction.
- To provide support and sign-posting to appropriate professional bodies.
- To help people get back on their feet and regain their sense of self-worth.
Cunninghame Housing Association then forwarded the request onto our Area Director David Roan who informed our team and involved our supply chain partners Jarvie Plant Hire and J&J Currie Ltd in sourcing a cabin that we could donate and transport to site. We are looking forward to seeing how this cabin will be transformed by Kate’s Kitchen’s Volunteers in the upcoming months.
