Health and Wellbeing Centre – work begins
On January 4th 2016 the builders arrived on site and immediately set up a security fence and started stripping out the fixtures and fittings in the old clinic building on Easthope Road.
The builders, PAVE-AWAYS Ltd based in Oswestry, were selected in July 2014 following a tender process. We are delighted that they stayed with us during the protracted negotiations.
The activities that were operating in the clinic in 2015 have been rehoused, temporarily until the newly refurbished centre opens, in Mayfair, a portacabin at the back of Mayfair, in the GP Practice and at Ley Gardens. We appreciate the support of the Church Stretton medical Practice and our partners at Shropshire Housing Group to ensure we keep these services local and accessible.
Whilst the building work takes place there will be no car parking on the road down to Mayfair or at the rear of the clinic or the Centre. I appreciate that this will cause inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. It is imperative that we maintain access for Ring and Ride as well as to the building site. We are grateful to Shropshire Council for allocating us some car park passes which will save us costs.
Since we announced the news in December that the lease was signed people have been coming into Mayfair with good wishes and the pledges they made back in 2014. The response has been heart-warming and we can’t thank you enough.
Nicola McPherson – Chief Officer
