Staff and users of Age Concern Budleigh Salterton are hoping for some warmer weather to make use of its new summer house.

The wooden building, constructed on the grounds of the community hospital’s health and wellbeing hub, will provide an outdoor retreat for users of the drop-in centre. It will also be a ‘life-sized Wendy house’ for children at Carousel Nursery, also based at the hub.

The summerhouse was built with financial support from the hospital league of friends, the Norman Family Charity Trust, Coop Community Funs, Budleigh Lions Club and Westbank. Since moving into the hub, Age Concern has launched a new assisted bathing facility. The drop-in centre has announced there will be a musical programme with the former artist director of Budleigh Salterton Music Festival, Nicholas Marshall.
