Celebrating 400 years of Almshouses in Dorchester

Maintaining independence by improving access

To celebrate 400 years of the adjacent Whestones and Nappers Almshouses in 2014, we aim to improve the long term independence of residents by:-

  • Improving access by removing many of the steps in the Whestones almshouse complex
  • Creating a sensory garden for all residents of Whetstones
  • Creating an area for socialising and enjoying the outdoors
  • Improving the garden facilities at Nappers
  • Providing an opportunity for gardening so improving physical and mental fitness of the residents
  • Providing an enclosed mobility buggy store with charging facilities via a dedicated lift.

We need to raise £50,000
