The new ‘Pavilion’ as we are calling was installed last year and this has proved hugely helpful as we have been able to convert it to a Covid-safe ‘pod’ for visiting. 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 have also developed a patio area in front of the ‘Pavilion’ with suitable furniture so that it can be enjoyed in the warm weather and access through a level path so that wheelchair users are also able to use the space.
We are now looking at ways in which we can convert the courtyard area into a ‘sensory garden’. This will become another area for our residents and the relatives to enjoy and we are hoping to be able to connect it into the main part of the Home in a way that facilitates access for all.
Internally we continue with an ongoing programme of redecoration in order to keep the Home looking fresh and attractive. The Dining room is looking much brighter with the brand new tables and chairs installed, new blinds and a complete redecoration. We are hoping to add a mural to one of the walls in the near future as a final ‘touch’.
Plans are being worked up to replace the corridor carpets and redecorate these areas of the Home.
