Breaking news: Barnfield saved by Alpha Homes

PEOPLE in fear of losing their homes at Barnfield in Batley Carr have been saved by a new landlord.

Alpha Homes is to take over the scheme from Anchor, which currently owns the sheltered housing complex.

Anchor announced in August that it was trying to find a new social landlord to run the complex so that residents would be able to remain in their homes.

An Anchor spokesman said: “We have been entirely focused on achieving this positive outcome for tenants.”

He said Anchor was confident that Alpha would offer a good quality service.
