John Jellicoe’s brother, Frederick, was not only an outstanding counter cricketer and bowler, he was also a man of the cloth. As was his nephew, Father Basil Jellicoe. I was able to visit Somer town (now run by Origin Housing). Basil Jellicoe’s vision of creating social housing builtas a community was showed an extraordinarily humanitarian vision well before its time. The flats each had a creche for the residents to use. They were the first social housing flats in the UK that had electricity. I was very kindly showed me around the estate by Sahil Kahn.
