As part of the Centenary celebrations, The Abberley Hall Foundation has supported the completion of the magnificent Tree House.  Steel work has gone in to support the floor, and a brand new impressive spiral staircase has been installed.
The team consisting of Mr Jordan Scott and Maj Geoff Brocklehurst (parent) have been hard at work completing the final work on the Tree House which has included lining the entire inside of the Tree House, installing an interior ladder and finishing the exterior cladding.  To complete the exterior cladding which is at least 8 to 9 metres off the ground, would not have been possible without the very kind donation of the brilliant Red Spider from Red Spider Hire (Bob Graydon - parent).  This marvellous piece of equipment could not only negotiate the steep access to the tree house, but then form a stable platform on a very unflat surface and also safely lift Geoff to great heights to complete the work.  What could have taken a couple of weeks, was completed in a day and a half.
We are all very much looking forward to the Tree House being used on a regular basis as it is the most amzing resource.  It is a big area, and will be easily able to accommodate a full class of pupils at anyone time.  It is very high up, so the views are fantastic, and will really give pupils a birds eye (and squirrel!) view of the forest.  For the more adventorous it can also be used for exciting sleepovers however there is quite a walk to the nearest facilities, but that is the joy of living in a Tree House!
The official opening will be on Thursday 16th November at around 1300.  Mulled wine and hot dogs will be on offer, plus AH merchandise will be available to purchase.  I do hope you can all join us and view this magnificient structure.  Please contact the Foundation Coordinator, Judith Brocklehurst if you wish to attend: judith.brocklehurst@abberleyhall.co.uk
