We are the 29 residents of Castle House, a friendly sheltered housing scheme on the edge of Vauxhall, Lambeth. We are older people living happy, independent lives in our own individual flats, around a beautiful garden. We have an award-winning Scheme Manager who lives at Castle House and she supports us whenever needed. Castle House is part of Lambeth’s Sheltered network and is managed by Lambeth Living.
We have many activities at Castle House which include older people from the surrounding area. Every week we have bingo, and keep fit and there are regular computer/digital sessions. A hairdresser visits fortnightly.
We celebrate everything – Christmas, Easter and everybody’s birthdays and anniversaries. Our parties are legendary!
Castle House is on Wilcox Close SW8, behind Tate South Lambeth Library. We are close to all major transport links: 10 minutes walk from Vauxhall tube/bus and overground stations and also 10 minutes walk from Stockwell tube station. Many buses stop within a few hundred yards. Local shops, health centre, pharmacy and Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose locals are all nearby.
