OWCH

OWCH is a group of women over fifty who have created our own community in a new, purpose-built block of flats in Union St., High Barnet, N. London. As an alternative to living alone, we have friendly, helpful neighbours.Finally, New Ground Cohousing is complete and OWCH members began moving into their new homes this week. We hope everyone will have moved in by early January. The last few exhausting and anxious months have taken their toll on many of us, but this will fade with time and rest. Our dream is being realised at long last.We are carving out a path for others in our age group to follow. We hope they have an easier journey than us, now we have shown the way. The senior cohousing community could enrich the last years of many, and reduce pressures on health and care services, if local authorities, planners, policy makers and developers helped remove the many obstacles society puts in its way
