  1. Mecure is inconsistent. I pay £35 per month until we got a new manager for a short period of time you could take a guest in for £3. Now she has made it up 16 £3 no concessions for the over sixities,what has annoyed me is I pay £35 yet people of my age 60plus are paying £30 and when I asked her she said no you have to be 65 and not work. All the members I have spoken including well known citizens are paying £30 and are 60 plus and working. Discrimination act may come into play

  5. I worked on the Kelvin Project when people were being rehoused,the place was a wonderful mix of people all with a story to tell.

When you look at edward st another complex that is still going strong lessons need to be learnt about social housing
