A RETIREMENT housing scheme in Wallsend is holding an open day next week.

Tenants and staff at Anchor’s Iona Court in Perth Gardens are organising the event for Monday, 10am to 2pm.

Scheme manager Joan Williamson said: “We’re holding this open day so that members of the local community can look round and speak to our tenants to hear for themselves how happy a place this is to live.”
