Robin Newton East Belfast DUP MLA has met with residents in Jonesboro Park who have had new kitchens installed as part of a Northern Ireland Housing Executive scheme. Residents who are delighted with the new kitchens have waited a long time for the for this work to get started.
Robin Newton said,
"This scheme, Lower Beersbridge Scheme, comprising 110 new kitchens was at one time cancelled due to funding cut backs. However, i am pleased that following contact with NIHE, after face-to-face meetings, correspondence and lobbying money was finally found."
Residents are delighted with their new kitchens and Mrs Lily Warnock said, "if we hadn't contacted Robin Newton and him getting involved I don't think we would have got our new kitchens."
Mrs Myrtle Cooke agreed adding, "no matter what we contact Robin about he is willing to help. I am delighted all the work is finished and my new and modern kitchen is now installed."
"This worthwhile scheme has been very well received by residents and is a good investment by NIHE, added Robin Newton"
