The keys to four new affordable homes in Burnham Market have been handed over to new owners by Victory Housing Trust.

The four new homes at Sandells Walk represent a £567,000 investment by the housing Trust, who are offering a two-bedroom house and a three-bedroom house for rent, and two two-bedroom houses offered for shared ownership.

Caitlin Finan and her two year-old son Alfie, were the first to receive their keys for one of the affordable rented homes. The pair, along with their dog Jessie, had have been living in one room at Ms Finan’s mother’s house and had been on the housing list for just over a year.

When she received the keys, Ms Finan said: “It’s really good to have my independence and feel like I’m doing things for myself finally.

“The house is really lovely – as soon as I saw it I really wanted it. I’m really looking forward to making it a home.”
