Gloucester House Day Unit

Due its proximity to Daleham Gardens, Gloucester House Day Unit was closed on Tuesday and its playground will be closed for the remainder of the week. This is whilst we erect fencing to create a safe distance between the site of the fire and the playground. We will begin putting up the fencing this evening, we apologise for any noise and disruption caused, however in the interests of resident health and safety it is important we get these works underway immediately.
