RESIDENTS of Yarmouth's deprived Southtown area can find out how they can access a major pot of cash
to carry out repairs to their homes and bring them up to a decent standard.
An exhibition of the Southtown Housing Improvement Project (Ship) will be held in St Mary's Church Hall in St Mary's Lane on Thursday, June 25.
Ship received �3.4m from the government earlier this year to help boost the area by improving private sector housing stock, some of which still needs proper repairs from the 1953 floods.
