Day 574 - repairs of uninsured houses start next week

Thursday, 20 September 2012 4:18 p.m. by addingtonaction

Addington Action will be resuming the free repair of uninsured homes next week starting Thursday.

The homes must be owner occupied by elderly, disabled or single parent with young kids who have no insurance through no fault of their own.

The best guess so far is that there are about 200 uninsured homes that meet this criteria to be repaired in the area that Addington Action organises.

This area covers Hoon Hay, Hillmorton, Spreydon, Addington, Sydenham, Waltham and Opawa.
