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 Room was completed by a lovely team of volunteers, including several of our trustees, led by our good friend Jane Clamp. The room looks fresh, bright and attractive in its new livery. It was such a successful project that John Currey, our Trustee Director, is already making plans for a similar volunteer project next year!
On the top floor of the Hall every bedroom has been re-carpeted as well as the corridors. It looks so much better, is quieter and feels cosier. Several rooms have been decorated. Downstairs, the flooring improvements have continued in the office, rear hall and stairs. Residential guests will also feel the benefit of new beds and mattresses in several of the rooms over the next few weeks.
These are some of the things we have been doing behind the scenes; and in the coming year we aim to improve and increase bathroom facilities in both the Hall and Stables as well as moving on with the refurbishment of our windows and continuing to improve and replace furniture around the buildings. In all of this, our aim is to preserve and maintain the buildings to a high standard and to the glory of God and, of course, to provide increasingly comfortable and enjoyable facilities for our guests.
