Ten months after the devastating fire at Marling Court care home, the extensive refurbishment of their kitchen facilities and bin store has been completed.
Gloria George, Home Manager at Marling Court said;
“We were all devastated when the fire struck, as we couldn’t believe someone was trying to damage our home. We are all like one big family here, so we all stuck together, and we have now come out the other side.
“This was made easier by the wonderful community of Hampton, who were so supportive in the aftermath of the attack. People came along to help repair the building, gave up their time doing activities with the residents and offered their services doing ‘odd jobs’.”
During the refurbishment works the home made use of a temporary portacabin kitchen powered by a generator to the rear of the building in Bramble Lane.
The modern new facilities will enable Marling Court to continue providing “wonderful, freshly cooked food” for their residents.
“I for one, and all the staff, families and residents at Marling Court are now so delighted with our new kitchen and bin store.” said Gloria George, “I’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped get to where we are today. We are proud to be part of Marling Court, and the community of Hampton.”
