Thirty three years ago St Martin’s church started up a care home at 128 Suez Road for precious folk with learning disabilities. It is still providing a lovely, caring home for folk and still supported and encouraged and prayed for by all those attending St Martin’s church.
There are places available at the present time. Being de-registered reduced the costs of living there. It is homely, a little old-fashioned, and folk of any age tare welcomed o come and live there.
There is a substantial group of Friends and Supporters of 128 headed up by John Woodhouse, who has been Mayor of Cambridge twice, and they support 128 with a Christmas Show each year, summer garden parties and contact throughout the year, and visits to the house, and a weekly gathering at Cherry Hinton to enjoy time with the residents.
