The Gazebo – mark II

I’m sure if you have visited Valerie Manor before in the summer you would have been able to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful countryside in one of the many seating areas in the gardens.

During a recent residents meeting its was mentioned that although the gazebo was a lovely place to sit and watch the wildlife and animals in the fields adjacent (Llamas, Alpacas, Pigs, Goats etc) it was a bit exposed to the wind.

We tasked Lee with the project and he spoke to the residents and between them came up with a plan!

Zoe & I visited this week – just in time to ‘test’ the new seating! which as you will see below passed with flying colours!

A huge thank you to Lee and the residents for their time and effort.
