Goodbye armchairs

To most this is just a photograph of a couple of armchairs in a skip. However, for many who have passed through Cove Park this image signifies the end of an era as we do the final clear out of the existing centre's contents prior to its imminent demolition.

Love or hate them, the donated chintz armchairs were a comfortable, homely feature of the centre. Further, it is rumoured the printed, patterned chairs inspired photographic and drawn works by residents. If you are one of said residents, please share your artworks and indeed your memories with us! In latter years the armchairs were strictly Hamish the dog's domain for dozing the day away.

Our temporary home

Whilst the work on our new Artist Centre is carried out we have created a temporary home for Cove Park's office, the communal residents space and facilities down site in Oak Pod.

It's a cosy set up for residents, staff and visitors. All available space is being optimised, including putting staffs' desks in the Pod bedrooms - our Director Julian doesn't seem to mind one bit.
