Wood you believe it! ND’s a real craftsman!

31st May 2018

Heathcotes’ Larkrise services in Surrey proved to be more than handy with their carpentry skills when a member of staff and a service user teamed up to turn some leftover wood into some beautifully crafted furniture!

Heathcotes are currently developing some self-contained pods across our Group to promote independence for our service users. Our first pod has just been completed at Larkrise and the builders left some timber offcuts on site. Service Manager, Ridwan Ameerbeg, and service user ND saw it as an opportunity to put the material to good use and the pair are certainly on the same plane when it comes to woodworking. By the time they finished, Larkrise was in possession of a new herb standing planter, bench, coffee table and bird feeder!ND woodwork 3

As you can see from the photos, Ridwan and ND’s efforts revealed some seriously impressive craftsmanship as well as an admirable commitment to reducing waste! The evidence suggests a very well-drilled operation…

Well done ND and Ridwan- these new additions to the service will certainly be put to good use over the summer months!
