Mr Morgan had a tour of the scheme, which was opened by HRH Princess Alexandra in 1982, with Local Housing Manager, Tony Crumplin and was shown the communal areas and the viewing room, where there are binoculars and a view overlooking the sea.
Stephen Morgan, MP said: “It was a pleasure to visit Alexandra Court in Southsea and meet residents. It was helpful to hear the wider work of Housing 21 in supporting residents through its Retirement Living and Extra Care schemes.”
Following the tour, Mr Morgan took the opportunity to join residents in the communal lounge where he discussed his priorities for the local area and hosted a question and answer session.
Adele Lees, Operations Manager for Hampshire South was also in attendance, and said: “Mr Morgan’s visit to the scheme was a great addition to its 40th anniversary. It gave residents the opportunity to find out more about what is going on in their local area. It was a lovely day enjoyed by all.”
