TELEVISION personality Ross Kemp will be visiting Herefordshire next week to open some new cottages for veterans.

Best known for his role as hard-man Grant Mitchell in Eastenders, the actor and presenter will be joining The Buchanan Trust in Bosbury for the grand opening of their Almshouse Veteran cottages project.

He will join a range of dignitaries and supporters of the project at the opening next Friday.

The new cottages will provide homes for four ex-military families at the trust's Bosbury Estate, which offers short to medium-term residential accommodation for former service men and women and their families.

The cottages will be formed in community clusters, so a safe environment can be gained and friendships made.

The Buchanan Trust offers residential accommodation for up to 40 beneficiaries, for veterans and their families, who have left the services and wish to make a successful return to civilian life but have not yet done this or decided how to achieve it.
