Shepton Mallet Almshouses
SHEPTON MALLET ALMSHOUSES
For nearly 400 years Shepton Mallet and surrounding villages have been served by Almshouses for the benefit of older people who need good, central accommodation on a small budget.
There are 12 properties and 9 of them are listed buildings the majority of which have been upgraded to modern standards. All are centrally heated have kitchens and bathrooms and are fully carpeted; they all have small gardens; four are bungalows. It is the aim of the Trustees to provide a home to over 55’s for as long as they can look after their own needs although there is a weekday Warden service for support and advice. Residents can join in and enjoy occasional Open Day events and teas; this year there is to be a Christmas Lunch.
Should you want further information or want to apply to join our waiting list please look at our website: Alms1627.org.uk or contact Mrs Dawn Gould, Clerk to the Trustees on 01749 838646
Evercreech currently is home to 2 Trustees and our Clerk; we currently have two Trustee vacancies and if you are a practical person with useful skills that you think would help us we would like to hear from you. There are 4 meetings a year and Trustees would be expected to help on sub-committees and at Residents’ functions. Details again from Dawn as above.
