We are working on a project to place a “Summer House” at the top end of our gardens towards the Manvers. The aim is to provide a new space for our residents to enjoy the gardens and to make this somewhere usable even in the colder months. UPDATE! – The new ‘Pavilion’ as we are calling it has been installed! We need to do some further work to get it connected properly to the Home and paint it but we hope to be able to put it to use shortly. We are calling it the Pavilion to recognise the connection between the Manor House and the famous Notts and England cricketer George Parr who was born here.
We will also develop a patio area in front of the ‘Pavilion’ with suitable furniture so that it can be enjoyed in the warm weather and we will provide access through a level path so that wheelchair users are also able to use the space.
Looking further ahead, we intend to assess the condition of all roofs (aided by a drone survey!) and draw up a comprehensive repair programme.
Internally we continue with an ongoing programme of redecoration in order to keep the Home looking fresh and attractive.
