Warmington Almshouses - One Bedroomed House Available for Long Term Occupation

One of the Warmington almshouses will become available at the beginning of November. The house has a bedroom, lounge/kitchen, wet room and small utility area and will be fully redecorated. The house is part of a period building containing 3 separate almshouses surrounded by gardens in the middle of the village. The almshouses are maintained by the Warmington Almshouses Charitable Trust and the Trustees welcome applications from anyone. Priority will be given to long term residents of Warmington and surrounding villages and the successful applicant will pay a monthly contribution (similar to rent) which is generally lower than equivalent private rentals in this area.

If you, or someone you know, would like to live in this house then please contact the Trustees who will be able to provide detailed information on facilities and costs.

General information about these almshouses is also available on the village website at www.warmington.org in the Warmington Community section.

Initial contact should be by email to the Trustees at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Local Children's Activities

Following a request on the Warmington Web Facebook page by a parent moving to the village, I have compiled a list of children's activities in the surrounding area, although I appreciate that there may be others that I am not aware of. Please note that this is a work in progress and feel free to make any changes/additions as necessary. Thanks, Gillian.
