Update on renovation of the toilets at Brambleton Hall.

The renovation of the toilets at Brambleton Hall took place over the Easter holidays.  The work was done without any cancellation of the nursery or boxing club term time activities – so no loss of income.

£28.5K was available in the Brambleton Renovation Fund.  The projected cost to completion of the toilet renovation is £26.5K, giving a balance remaining of over £2K for the next phase of renovation.

The renovated toilets include:

  1. A disabled toilet with WC, wash basin, sensor tap, hot air dryer
  2. Three standard toilets
  3. Hand washing trough in corridor with 3 sensor taps and 2 hot air hand dryers
  4. Hot water from two new electric heaters set to a controlled, child friendly temperature
  5. Ventilation in all toilets and corridor
  6. Solid oak doors on all toilets with quality hinges and door furniture
  7. Central heating radiators in corridor and disabled toilet area
  8. Largest toilet cubicle has a cleaner cupboard and cleaner sink (to be installed later)
  9. All new waste pipes and drain access
  10. Suspended ceiling with sensor operated lights in all toilet areas and lobby area
  11. Baby changing table in disabled toilet area (to be installed when decorating is complete)
  12. new non-slip, high use floor covering in toilet area and entrance lobby

As of 23rd May there is some minor work to be completed including the fitting of the remaining architraves, door locks and the plumbing in of the cleaners sink. The flooring must be put in but before that the toilets are to be decorated.  All work is expected to be complete by the end of June.

Report on work done at Brambleton Hall September 2017

Over the past two weeks the Community Rehabilitation group, Tony Williams and Keith Newman have worked to lay artificial grass on the play area at Brambleton Hall.  This will provide an all weather play area for the children at the Lollipop Nursery.  The materials were paid for by the parish with approval at the last PCC meeting.  The nursery team, led by Belinda Mcginn, are very pleased with the result.
