A new era has begun for a housing provider.

Square Building Trust, which has been operating for more than eight decades, is entering the next phase of its history with managing agent Bernicia.

The trust was set up in 1929 following a Bible class at Northumberland Square Presbyterian Church with the aim of improving housing conditions in North Shields.

Bill Southern, chairman, said: “In our 85-year history we’ve re-housed hundreds of tenants and managed our 120 homes to high standards.

“Our management committee is confident that with Bernicia’s great track record our tenants will continue to benefit from excellent services.

“We would like to thank Home Group for their services as managing agent over the past 37 years.”

Jeannie McMillan, operations deputy at Bernicia, said: “We are delighted to be working with Square Building Trust, a unique housing provider that has the same aims as Bernicia in providing good quality homes and services to tenants.”
