fabian picardo tells spain to drop sovreignty claim and be friendsA MULTIMILLION pound property in London is set to home Gibraltarians who need UK hospital treatment.

The proposed £8.4 million Calpe House in Bayswater will soon home up to 70 Gibraltarians at a time.

Chief Minister Fabian Picardo announced that plans are already underway for a £2 million refurbishment of three properties near St. Mary’s Hospital to create a ‘home away from home’ for Gibraltarians in need.

“This is very good news for the community,” said Picardo. “It’s a great pleasure for us to support the Trustees of the Calpe House Trust with a new home away from home for the people of Gibraltar in London.”

The home will be staffed by full-time and voluntary Londoners.
