Grange resident Terry Bennett said the pensioners had missed the opportunity to get out of their homes and meet people. He said: “The council has put polycarbonate over the windows which kept getting smashed.

“The other good thing is that the pharmacy is due to open at @ The Grange on Monday too. They are moving from Chepstow Road which means that eyesore building can be finally demolished.”
