Vacancy – Almshouses
The Trustees of the John Baker Charity, which manages the village Almshouses in Bowmen’s Lea, Aynho, are advertising for a new resident to occupy an unfurnished, one-bedroom dwelling. The dwelling is available now and the Trustees would like it to be occupied by the beginning of December.
The Almshouses are for single occupancy and the Trustees are required to seek potential applicants: single men or women aged 50 or above who are able to live independently, and who have a need which the Charity can support. A connection with Aynho or the parish of St Aldate’s, Oxford, is the main requirement for any prospective applicant but, where no applicants have any connection, the Trustees prioritise based on need. They do not want good houses to be left unoccupied. The weekly maintenance charge (rent) for the dwelling is £52.50 per week (£2,730 per year).
Applications should be submitted as soon as possible. The window for applications closes on 15 October. Interviews for prospective applicants will be notified.
Enquiries or initial applications should be made by email to email@example.com or by post to Mrs Amanda Leigh at 12 Bowmen’s Lea, Aynho, OX17 3AG, Tel. 01869 810843. She will provide information on the next step.
