Veteran British broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson has slammed plans to evict residents from historic almshouses in a Berkshire village.

Jesus Hospital in Bray has housed the “the poor and aged” since 1627, with residents paying rent but occupying the properties under license. However, a new plan will see the properties – run by the Fishmongers’ Company – sold to developers.

“Not only has the Fishmongers’ Company grossly betrayed the wishes of [founder of the Almshouses] Sir William Goddard, but they have betrayed the residents of Jesus Hospital and the village itself, of which the almshouses are an important part of its fabric and heritage,” said Sir Michael.
