Local MP for Ludlow, Philip Dunne unveiled Oak Farm’s new portacabin on a rainy morning in Ditton Priors last Friday.
During his visit he took a keen interest in everyone present and made sure he was individually introduced to everyone. Philip was pleased to see the success of a voluntary sector organisation building on a service developed by the council. A service which he acknowledged he has always been very supportive of and has visited many times over the years
Although the previous portacabin had served Oak Farm well, replacing it with a modern, larger cabin had been on the wish list of the Workers for some time and its arrival was a great source of anticipation.
This exciting new development came about through the generosity of Oak Farm Friends Association (OFFA) who kindly donated the cabin to Oak Farm and used funds raised to contribute towards the removal of the previous portacabin and then the installation and furnishing of the new one. As well as recognising the valuable contribution made by OFFA, Oak Farm Manager Stuart Toulson also wanted to say a, “huge thank you to the work men Archie, Knocker and John for really going above and beyond their duties and for being so great, kind, and considerate of all the Workers at Oak Farm. It was a great pleasure to have them working on site.” The new portacabin provides the Oak Farm workers with a larger, better equipped and more suitable base to conduct meetings, engage in activities and have refreshment breaks and has a special plaque by the entrance which MP Philip Dunne unveiled to commemorate this special day.
