The Centre at Benson Oxfordshire is fully open. Throughout our extension project we will remain open and cater for the same number of customers. At times space will be limited, but we will still have a delicious lunch and some activities. The improvements continue ahead of schedule...for detail see below.
More events planned for January and February....do watch this space
Expansion - Our Extension and Refurbishment project
With a growing elderly population, and our aim to help people maintain their independence as long as possible, we see a real need to expand our Centre. We spent much time planning an expanded and refurbished building with a lounge extension. We have approval from our landlord SOHA.
We appointed local architects Matthew T Young and selected Roy Passey Builders from Benson for the contract.
Work continues ahead of schedule and the new lounge extension and small kitchen refurbishment is finished. The new disabled toilets are almost completed as is the dining area refurbishment.
Alas as in so many projects we have added in some essential extras and changes to meet all the rules and are a little over budget. As a result we have borrowed more money than planned.
Any donation to help us with the cost is much appreciated. Please look at our Millstream Centre Just Giving where any donation is enhanced with gift aid
