Margaret Mead, Surprises and A Refubishment

22 Dec
Never doubt Margaret Mead

Let’s do it!

It is lovely to see how a real eyesore in our town, The Hollies Hotel which had been destroyed in a fire,  has now been converted into five one-bedroom flats which will be let to local people in housing need. The newly refurbished building is now known as Kelyn House, with Kelyn being the Cornish word for holly.

Some months ago, I commissioned a local artist to make us something very special and today it was delivered, meeting all expectations! I will show you in the New Year!

    It is wonderful to see disused buildings restored and put to good use. I look forward to you sharing your secret in the new year.

      I agree and this one has been really well done and to be one bedroom flats will make homes for those in need. 😀
