Plaque award presented to Lea Springs
One of our retirement housing schemes in Harpenden has been presented with a prestigious award to celebrate its contribution to the town.
Lea Springs in Lower Luton Road has been presented with a Plaque Award by the Harpenden Society. This is the top award the society gives for outstanding developments or facilities.
Penny Ayres, of Harpenden Society said: “The prestigious Harpenden Society Plaque Award for 2014 was presented to Lea Springs because not only does it enhance the local environment, it also provides quality accommodation and top facilities for our village’s older people.”
Lea Springs is an Extra Care scheme, which features self-contained apartments and has care and support services on-site. It provides 21 one-bedroom and 17 two-bedroom apartments, as well as communal facilities including a lounge, restaurant, hair salon and activity room.
Jenny Havard, court manager at Lea Springs, said: “We are extremely pleased and proud to have been given this award by the Harpenden Society.
“This is a lovely town with lovely people, and it means a great deal to us to be a part of this community.”
The Harpenden Society was founded in 1930 and currently has more than 1,000 members. It aims to ensure that the town remains a green and pleasant place in which to live, work or visit.
