Brooke Park

We are now into a New Year and the contractor is working hard to meet the programme. Despite all the cold and wet weather, work has been continuing on all the main buildings on site, doors are being installed as are the second fix heating, lights etc. The painting has also commenced on the interiors of the Contact Sports Centre and the Horticultural Training Centre. At the gate lodge the stone mason has been carrying out repairs to the gable end of the building, whilst also restoring the stone plinth of the statue. Works are also continuing along the boundary walls and railings.  Since the beginning of the year the landscape contractor has also been working hard planting the many trees and shrubs which are critical to the restoration of the Park.
