New housing dedicated to Bishop Stevenson
A new housing development in Fareham has been dedicated to the late Bishop Kenneth Stevenson in honour of his contribution to the local community.
Stevenson Court, located in Palmerston Avenue, Fareham, was officially opened at a dedication ceremony by the Mayor of Fareham, along with members of Bishop Stevenson's family.
Bishop Stevenson lived in Fareham for over 14 years and played a key part in strengthening ties between the Diocese and the Council, often holding engagements with the Mayor and Executive Leader of the Borough Council. He passed away on 12 January 2011.
The Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Connie Hockley said, "This is a fitting way to honour Bishop Stevenson and pay tribute to the contribution he made to the Borough and the Diocese. I'm sure he would be very proud that this impressive accommodation will be enjoyed for years to come by those who need it the most."
The brand new 16 one bedroom flats were built by the Council to provide high quality, affordable accommodation for residents on the Housing Waiting list.
