By BBN Staff: Well over 1,000 people visited Sandhill village this morning for the housing open day hosted by the Holy Redeemer Credit Union (HRCU).
The event, geared towards members and potential members of the HRCU, showcases two-bedroom and three-bedroom houses available in the HRCU’s Eagle Gem Estate community, named after Henry Eagle Usher. The HRCU is also offering informational pamphlets explaining the housing types and payment schemes for houses of various values.
Mark Menzies, human resource manager for the HRCU, explained that credit union icon Jane Usher came up with the idea for the housing project, which the HRCU is seeing through to fruition.
“Ms. Jane always said that we need to help people, and people always need housing. That’s why we are out here today,” Menzies said.
Menzies added that the project is in its first phase, where 67 houses will be built, before the project moves into phase two. Over 30 of the houses are near completion. Interested persons have until 3:00 p.m. to make it to the open day.
