The Carers’ Centre purchased Woodlands in 2015, with the help of a social investment loan, to provide a permanent place for Carers in Bath and surrounds. Since then, Woodlands has been our home in Bath and has been host to two Bath Half cheer stations, a sponsored walk, young carers family days, pizza nights, a massage workshop, willow weaving and a whole programme of free breaks and activities!
Needless to say the building has had a workout with all the visitors (including young carers getting the glitter glue out!) so it was in dire need of refreshing. We applied to the Big Lottery fund to sponsor the refurbishment and were successful!
Now Woodlands is looking wonderful again. We’ve had a new, dark blue carpet put through the downstairs lounge, meeting rooms and upstairs offices. The kitchen has been refitted with more cupboards, a new countertop & splash-back and fresh flooring.
The amenities have also been refreshed and we even have dementia-friendly bright blue loo seats!
We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone for bearing with us while Woodlands was closed and welcome you to come and have a look round the new digs!
See you there 🙂
