After helping at the Larchfield Community farm and garden for many years, Paul knew it was the place to be. So, when a flat in the community became available, he jumped at the chance!
“I’ve always wanted to live at Larchfield, ever since I first started coming here,” says Paul. “I was offered the flat, and I was all packed up and ready to move – and then the pandemic happened!”
Lockdown meant that Paul’s plans were put on hold. But after a frustrating wait, his move went ahead – a year later than expected. Now he’s settling in – and he couldn’t be happier with his new home.
The size of the flat is great. I have my own bedroom, a living room and a big kitchen. I can do my own cooking, and the staff look out for me, and help me with cleaning. They’ve been so supportive.
A life of opportunity on the doorstep
As well as being closer for his sessions at the farm, Paul has joined more of the regular activities at Larchfield Community.
I’m doing craft on a Tuesday afternoon now. That’s new. I’d never tried that before. And I’ve joined the Voices of Larchfield group so I can share my thoughts. I love getting involved!
A belated welcome to Larchfield Community Paul – we’re delighted that you’ve joined us, and wish you every happiness in your new home!
