Over the moon to announce that our holiday home Phoebes Lodge is now back open and ready to make some more smiles with the first family due in tomorrow morning 🎉
On returning to the caravan after the annual site shutdown in early February I was devastated to find that the winter months had left us with a serious case of damp; mainly situated in the master bedroom this damp had not only rotted the main flooring but covered many items of furniture in mould and left us needing some major works before we could allow any of our special children in again.
As a small charity with limited funds available to us I truly thought that was the end of Phoebes Lodge and the service it provides the children of this area however thanks to a few kind hearts, businesses and many hours of work later WE ARE OPEN and things are looking better then ever before.
I’d like to start off by thanking the forever supportive Guy Sparkes and all the team at Patrington Haven Leisure Park, not only did they get the main flooring replaced for us but had the works carried out to ensure it doesn’t come back any time soon replacing our bedroom window, re-sealing the outer walls and frames and sponsoring us again for yet another year……..THANK YOU 😊
I’d also like to thank Management and staff from Omar Park and Leisure Homes who replaced our carpets, underlay and grippers, sent over two amazing members of staff to fit it for us and if that wasn’t enough replaced our damaged side tables and storage box…..THANK YOU 😊
Amongst all the disruption one good thing did come out of this giving me the time needed to make some slight changes for the better; picture frames have been replaced showing the children we have supported of late, new sofas added, a much needed deep clean and I’ve even managed to created a sensory corner in the living area with a new bubble wall and several other items that will hopefully give our children a better experience for the needs they have.
To date 124 families have benefited from a holiday at Phoebes Lodge something i’m incredibly proud of and now she is back open and ready for 2019 ❤️
