Making improvements

As we explained in an earlier post, the last few weeks has been a season of improvements at Letton Hall.  We are grateful to God for the financial resources to decorate, lay carpets and re-furnish various areas of the Hall and Stables – and for a quieter few weeks in which to progress the work! The redecoration of the Stables Meeting …

Solstice reflections

It is the winter solstice (so they tell me); the time in the year when the sun is at it’s lowest point in the sky and we experience the shortest day and longest night. (If you know all the technical terms, celestial equator and sphere, excursion etc. please bear with this somewhat simple description!) The darkness is winning – or so it …

Down time

Last week the carpet fitter came to Letton Hall. Now that might not seem a big deal to you, but then you probably don’t have 22 bedrooms in your house! He came to measure up for the next phase of new carpets, for the top floor bedrooms and corridors of The Hall, as well as some stairs and hallways downstairs – and the flooring …

Profile – David Walmsley

Looking after Letton Hall and running the ministry involves quite a lot of people.  The resident team are familiar to many of you as you see them when you visit but there are many others, working in the background, staff, volunteers, trustees and friends, whose commitment and service make your enjoyment of Letton Hall possible.  From time to time, we …

Credit where it is due

We are delighted that our new website has been shortlisted in the Network Norfolk and Norwich : Digital Media Awards, in the category ‘Best Christian Organisation Website’.  Whilst we are pleased that our efforts have received even this much recognition and would be delighted to win the award, any praise should be shared with the remarkable people who helped put it …

Changing Seasons

  I don’t know about you, but our day-to-day life at Letton Hall is quite significantly affected by the changing seasons.  Although our efforts at horticulture are modest, we find ourselves thinking about winter planting as the summer flowers begin to die away and look fondly at the mower, wondering how many more cuts we will have to do this …

Old dogs and new tricks

So, we have a new website – and it’s looking good (well, we think so!) There is, however, one small problem… No-one likes a static, uninteresting website! To be really effective (they say) a website needs to be constantly updated with fresh content, like videos and blogs. Never let it get out of date! Keep it fresh! Connect it up …

Letton is full of Life!

Each week at Letton Hall we enjoy seeing our many guests and visitors but Letton teems with life, even when they are not here! Our neighbours fields are home to flocks of sheep and herds of cattle, but one of the great privileges for the team members who live on site is the variety of wildlife that surrounds us, especially …

Celebrating success

Letton Hall have just recovered a Food hygiene rating of 5 (the highest possible)  which represents a great achievement by our team.

More windows than Microsoft…

For over a year now, we have been working away at repairing and refurbishing the many sash windows at Letton Hall. It is slow and painstaking work and costly too, but the status of the Hall as a Grade 2* listed building makes it essential for us to do the work with care and attention to detail. Many, if not …
