Berrywood Hospital Library Build Update

The build of the Berrywood Hospital, and the library is moving on apace!  Since our last visit all the scaffolding has come down, doors and windows have gone in and there is even paint on the walls.

We've now had the final drawings for staff offices and a sample of the carpet, so we are able to get on and chose the colours for our furniture.

Everything is running to plan so we will be furiously packing from around the 12th of May with the move from Princess Marina to Berrywood starting on Monday the 17th.  There is still a lot to do, but we are looking forward to moving into this wonderful new space.
