A new extra care scheme will open its doors in Crymych today (Monday). Bro Preseli, Family Housing’s £9m facility is made up of 40 one and two-bedroom apartments for rent, which are situated alongside a new 20-space day centre.

It also includes a healthcare centre which will create new facilities for the existing GPs practice and Community Health Team on the former Livestock Mart site.

Phil Dennis, director of operations at Family Housing, said: “We have created much-needed facilities right in the heart of the community which goes to show what can be achieved when different agencies work towards a common goal.”

County councillor Simon Hancock, cabinet member for Adult Services, Health and Well-Being and Equalities, said: “I am delighted to see the completion of this innovative partnership project that will provide excellent housing, the opportunity to reduce social isolation amongst older people and a health facility for the Crymych area all on one site.”

An open day on Thursday was an opportunity for both prospective tenants and the community to see what Bro Preseli has to offer. The first tenants will move in today. While demand has been high, there are still vacancies.
