Mr Holmes said: “I was delighted to have visited the scenic supported living accommodation at Malmesbury Court on Victoria Road.
“It was great to join the manager, Richard Mwedzi, and a number of residents to hear from them and to discuss their thoughts and concerns. Residents asked me a few questions on local and national issues, and I was delighted to talk to them about what I have been working to deliver for them in Westminster to improve our towns and villages here in Eastleigh.”
During the day, Paul Holmes had a tour around Malmesbury Court by Court Manager Rich Mwedzi and Regional Operations Manager, Aminda Kaur.
Mr Holmes said: “After my tour and talk I had to confess certain envy of residents of Malmesbury Court, which looks over the beautiful Southampton Water estuary, which flows out into the Solent. It is wonderful to have such brilliant accommodation here in such a great location, and I look forward to my next visit.”
