Sawston couple Shannon and Jake contacted Brian earlier in the year, when their hopes of finding a council property were left foundering.
They had been to see a fairly run-down property, which would have been turned around quickly had the national lockdown not put paid to normal working by the council’s contractors. This was made worse by a closer inspection, which revealed additional work was necessary.
As a result the couple were living in their parents' house for over a year, with their four children including triplet babies, but the wait is finally over. The house has been refurbished, they have the keys and they will be able to set up their new home in time for Christmas.
"I was very happy to be able to talk with the council’s housing team on behalf of Shannon, Jake and their family," said Brian. "Despite the delays caused by the Coronavirus crisis, I thank the team and their contractors for creating super accommodation for this young family, who had to put up with terribly cramped conditions while they waited. I’ll be delighted to see them furnish it and turn it into their home, so they can have the Christmas they were hoping for."
