Marlborough House extra care home complex in Warrior Square, Hastings, will open its doors again to welcome residents following rebuild and restoration work.
The distinctive landmark building was extensively damaged in a devastating fire in July 2013, resulting in the relocation of over 30 residents over half of who are returning to news homes in the reopened complex.
Tony Morgan, Interim Director of Residents Services (Regions) at Hyde said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome residents back to Marlborough House.
“Rebuilding and refurbishing following the fire has presented some challenges but we were committed to returning the building to its former splendour from the very start. We’ve worked hard to complete the task and to ensure that we’re able to continue providing the homes and exemplary extra care services that local tenants need.”
A number of the original tenants will move back into Marlborough House in the New Year. There will also be brand new tenants joining the community as the remaining homes, currently available for expressions of interest, are allocated. To be considered for a home in Marlborough House prospective tenants must live in Hastings or have a local connection to the area.
