John and Eileen Dearden

John and Eileen Dearden have moved from The Burgesses into a newly-built bungalow in Kinver.

It was the desire to live near their daughter Susan that brought John and Eileen to Kinver five years ago. John admits that they hadn’t planned another move: “It was a shock to hear about the redevelopment proposal but it made a big difference that we were given as much information as possible and kept in the picture as we’ve gone along.”

A rehousing and support officer, Jackie Ilic thought that a new bungalow would be perfect for John and Eileen and took them to have a look around.

“We loved it straight away. It’s beautiful and we were excited to get moving straight away. We have got more space and our own gardens. It’s good to be able to move into somewhere brand new, decorated just the way we like it.”
