The Art Studio and The Library now Open!

We have all watched with interest as the original stables block (formerly the kitchen) has been transformed into an inspiring new space to enjoy.

Saturday saw the opening of The Art Studio and The Library. Residents and staff came to see the result of the conversion and many stayed to take part in sessions giving a taste of things to come.

The Art Studio can be booked at the Spa Reception by any resident, or member of staff for their residents. Over the coming months we will see just how versatile the room can be – what would YOU like to do here? Make jewellery? Paint or draw? Make pottery? Arrange flowers? There are unlimited possibilities – this is your space.

As a great example, resident Les Simpson will give a talk in the Conservatory at 10.00am on Friday 15th June on ‘An Introduction to Pottery’. He has arranged to lead an 8-week course in the Art Studio (soon to also house a pottery kiln) . If interested, please book a place at the Spa Reception. Great stuff!

The new library is a light and airy room for reading or savouring a quiet moment. As well as books, there are DVDs and a PC to use freely. Thanks to residents Mr and Mrs Mackie for their invaluable help in moving the resources from the previous library room.

So this is exciting news for the whole village! Do ask at the Spa if you would like more information, and keep an eye on posters and the TV screen at Reception. We urge you to pay a visit and open your mind as to what it could mean for YOU.
