Jubilee Housing Trust, Ringmer

Jubilee Housing Trust, Ringmer, has two cottages to rent to young families with a strong Ringmer connection at £300/month. Rentals are for three years only. One cottage will be available shortly, the other in mid-2016. If you qualify and are interested contact the Ringmer parish clerk, 01273 813242. Pity Lewes doesn't have a scheme like this.

Excellent. So great to see that the main qualifier is a strong local connection and a young family (instead of the usual 'must be in receipt of benefits or unemployed' that is a requirement for most discounts and extra hand-outs in the UK).

Originally established by the late Ian Askew M.C. As somewhere for young married couples to live while they accumulated seniority on the council housing list, in the days when there were council houses for ordinary families.
Today mainly an opportunity for young couples to pay a low enough rent to be able to save £600/month or so towards a deposit - in three years that builds to a credible amount. Or just somewhere genuinely affordable to live but, sorry, for three years only. Then it is someone else's turn.
