We have joined with The Rochester Independent College to deliver an inter-generational project between the school children and the tenants. This has included pumpkin carving, building bat boxes, poetry recitals and more.
Cost of living at Montgomery Court
You will pay us a basic rent and a service charge of between £238 and £272 per week (depending on your flat), which includes heating and hot water. Part of living at Montgomery Court means that an element of your service charge will cover the cost for you to have a three course hot lunch every day in the restaurant (this will be delivered to you during the Covid-19 pandemic).
You can claim housing benefit if you are eligible but there will be parts of the service charge that are not covered by housing benefit. You will also have to pay all the usual household expenses.
