New Home for Grayshott and District Housing Association

Grayshott and District Housing Association is delighted to share some exciting news ….we are about to welcome new tenants to our first new build in thirty five years.

Through legacies and generosity the Grayshott and District Housing Association has blossomed, but this is the first time in 35 years the Association has built a new home. A time for celebration indeed!

G&DHA is a much treasured part of the Grayshott Village which itself was chosen in 2016 as the ‘Champion of Champion Villages’ by EHDC. Now raising the total number of homes to support those in need, committed and connected to the village, to thirty one properties, the Board of the Association has every reason to celebrate this part of the continuity started over eighty years ago.

Mrs Jan Gale, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of G&DHA was joined by Councillor Ferris Cowper and other members of the Board, to officially take over this new build on Monday 3rd April 2017.

In 2015 G&DHA celebrated the 80th Anniversary of its formation acknowledging that Charlotte Lyndon had galvanised the village to buy the first twelve houses that started G&DHA. Sadly she died suddenly a year later and the Board has decided to call this new property ‘Lyndon’ in her memory. Her vision was to maintain a true rural community embracing all comers to share and live in our splendid village. The Board of the Association still endeavours to uphold these values.

The building of this new property is now complete and we hope to welcome its new tenants this month. It is a two bed roomed detached house set in its own compact and manageable garden and is in an enviable position near to the recreation ground.
