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.

Project manager Mark Turner said: “The event is the public's opportunity to learn first-hand what Ship can offer them in the way of better standards in their homes, such as new kitchens, improved plumbing, heating and installation.”
