Lillybrook contribution to local Village Hall

Lillybrook Estate Ltd support various local community  projects. For eight years we supported the St Marys Church Window Fund, with last of the windows being refurbished last year. We raised around £12,000 over the eight years, which was a very significant contribution towards the total cost.

Since the completion of the Church Windows refurbishment we now support Bradenstoke Village Hall, and have received the very pleasant following letter:

 

When we think about village halls, we imagine all kinds of scenarios. There is one common thread that affects almost all village halls, how do we find funds for the upkeep? Who will run the hall and what activities can be provided?

Bradenstoke Village Hall is fortunate because the inside has been updated and modernised so as to provide a warm, welcoming and comfortable venue.

All the work that has been carried out has cost a lot of money which has been raised in many ways. Lillybrook Estates have been very generous in this matter. Money raised from selling scrap metal has been donated to the Village Hall, so far this year, the magnificent sum of £1,277.39 has been raised. Philip and Lawrence are donating this money in support of the Hall for the benefit of Bradenstoke and Lyneham residents.

Lillybrook Estates have also helped in many other ways from providing metal fencing to labour and tools to dig a trench at the rear of the hall in order to repair a serious water leak which caused flooding in the kitchen.

It is no exaggeration to say that by their generosity the hall and the residents of Bradenstoke and Lyneham have been helped to keep this facility functioning. 

Philip and Lawrence help out in so many ways and if there is a problem, invariably they will be the first to be contacted and if they cannot help, they know a person who can.

It is fair to say that Lillybrook Estates are generous, always ready to help and on behalf of the Village Hall Committee we would like to say a big thank you.

Lillybrook Open Day

In association with Quickmove Properties, Lillybrook will be hosting an Open Day on Saturday 20th October from 10am -4pm.

There will be two New Park Homes available to view, where we hope to be able to give all attendees a glimpse at what Park Home living is all about.

 

The two Homes in question will be:

  • Prestige Sonata 42ft x 20ft located at No.38 Lillybrook
  •  Homeseeker Sofia 44ft x 20ft located at No.52 Lillybrook

 

Both Homes showcase perfectly what to expect if you decide to purchase a home on Lillybrook or Church Park.

Members of the Lillybrook team, along with a representative from Prestige Park Home Manufacturers and from Quickmove Properties will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

We will also be showcasing the plans for our new 12 Home development, with the first homes expected to arrive next summer.

 

We hope to see you there.

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.

Bradenstoke village hall fence

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.
