New Residents Arrive on Lillybrook

Lillybrook are delighted to welcome our newest residents to the Park, Roger & Janet Davies. They have recently moved into a new Prestige Sonata II at No.8 Lillybrook.

This new arrival is made special by the fact that Janets parents (Bill & Ethel Bailey) lived on the very same plot, arriving on Lillybrook in 1983 and staying with us at No.8 for 34 years before moving into a care home last year.

Both Roger & Janet loved the sentimental idea of living in a new home on the same plot as Janets parents, and being a family run Park we too were delighted at the prospect.

All of us here at Lillybrook wish Roger & Janet many years of happiness in their new home.

New Home Arriving On Lillybrook

We are delighted to announce that on Friday 19th January a new 42ft x 20ft Prestige Sonata 2 with be arriving on Lillybrook.

This Home will be located on No.8 Lillybrook and has already been sold subject to contract.

As with all new Lillybrook Park Homes this Home comes complete with SIP panel flooring (offering greater insulation & less squeaking than the standard wooden floors), triple glazed windows and thicker walls containing much greater insulation. All these extra features combine to offer the resident a much warmer, and cost effective Park Home.

The arrival of this Home kicks off a busy period for Lillybrook with a further Home arriving in February (Plot No.52 Lillybrook) and 2 further homes expected to arrive in June-July period, one on Lillybrook (Plot No.25) and one on Church Park (Plot No.40). We will also be carrying out extensive renewal work on Church Parks roads in January-February. Alongside these new homes arriving we plan to begin work on our 12 home new development.

New Lillybrook Bandstand

Lillybrook have just completed construction of a new wooden bandstand seating area located over the far side of our field (nearest the MOD Base).

The bandstand will offer residents sweeping views of the old airfield.

In conjunction with our recently granted planning for 12 new homes, this bandstand will form part of a new green park area, which will also feature a small lake.

All residents will be able to access this area via our walkway around the edge of the field, which we will begin work on next year.

Although this area is currently closed to residents, we plan to open it once work on the Lake has been completed and the hedging that will form the walkway planted.

Lillybrook make improvements to public footpath

Lillybrook have recently made improvements to the public footpath which runs along the top of the park overlooking Dauntsey Vale.

We used much of our excess soil stock to fill a large subsidence area of the footpath, making it much more level and considerably wider through that particular area.

The grass seed we planted has now grown through and has integrated itself seamlessly with the rest of the footpath.

Lillybrook provide new fence for Bradenstoke Village Hall

Following seven years with Lillybrook being the major sponsor of St Marys Church Window Fund, the refurbishment of the windows is now complete. They can now be opened for the first time since the Second World War.

As part of our efforts to support the local community Lillybrook are now going to offer some support to Bradenstoke Village Hall.

We were asked to design, fabricate and supply a fence along the Village Hall boundary wall, which was completed last week, and we were delighted to receive a thank you card from the Village Hall Committee.

In the past when we had scrap metal to take for recycling, resultant money was paid to St Marys Church Window Fund. We have now asked the Recycling Company that in future for any scrap metal we take to them they make payment to Bradenstoke Village Hall instead.

BH&HPA 2017 Conference

Philip attended the BH&HPA Annual Conference held in January 2017 at the Birmingham Metropole. There were a variety of useful seminars and presentations, which we feel will improve the operation of our Parks.

The attached photograph is of Philip being congratulated by David Bellamy for Lillybrook retaining the David Bellamy Conservation Award – Gold.

We are delighted to continue to hold the gold award for a further year, and are always striving to improve our environmental credentials.

New Lillybrook Seating Area

folly1

 

The Lillybrook staff have recently constructed a new seating area on the grass verge opposite the field. The steel folly was handmade and surrounds a slabbed area with a wooden bench. Beryl Cutts (No.79 Lillybrook) and ourselves have decided to dedicate the Bench in loving memory of Roy Cutts, Beryl’s husband who lived happily on the Park for 13 years. We hope that the shrubs Beryl has kindly planted will in time, grow up through the folly to form a semi enclosed area for residents to sit and enjoy the views.

Britain In Bloom

This is the second year that the Parish Council has entered Lyneham & Bradenstoke into Britain in Bloom and this time the village was reviewed in sections. This is the first year in which Lillybrook has been judged as its own section. We are delighted to say that both Lyneham and Bradenstoke recieved a silver award for the combined entry of both villages.

Lillybrook was honoured with an additional award for our eco homes and developments in eco-friendly fields. We feel that this award justifies our  efforts towards a greener Britain.
