OFFICIAL OPENING DAY CELEBRATIONS – 2011
Mark Drayford AM officially opened the new upgraded home on Monday 5th September. Mark was introduced by Professor Simon Smail, a board member and resident of Radyr, who outlined the project. Three stages of development have now been completed creating a living space for the residents of very high quality. Each room is self contained with on suite facilities, electronic devices to operate TV, doors, curtains, lights, telephone and even opening windows. The invited guests were impressed by the new design and the modern look of a Victorian building which has stood in the village for over a century. The home provides care and support for 30 disabled people.
A funding appeal launched in 2009 raised £4.5m supported by Leonard Cheshire Disability, the Big Lottery Fund, Henry Smith Charity, Legal and General, sponsors and local supporters. This included the funds raised by Martin Williams, a resident, who was pushed up Snowden in his wheel chair in 2010.
Jan Philips, service manager said “Everyone has a favourite bit of Dan y Bryn which is special to them. For me, I like the way old is incorporated into the new and the building has kept its own identity”
Mary, one of the residents,wrote the following poem for the opening –
“Today is quite a special in many, many, many ways
with the men who were behind it,
It took many weeks and days,
Today, is our re-opening as we thank in many ways.”
“There will be many people coming who have travelled quite a way,
Let’s not forget it is a very special day
At twelve o’clock there will be a special meal,
As to what we are having I sadly can’t reveal.”
Its thanks to the fund raisers that all the resourses were found to make this home a very special place for those who deserve a perfect living space.
