“For those interested in what is happening with Langdale nursing home:
After numerous years of trying High Adventure acquired the nursing home with a view to developing the site. After seeking quotes from local builders this proved unaffordable so we are currently renovating the old nursing home to be more bed spaces for High Adventure in a self contained building to be called 'The Nook' as in Ned Nook, for those of you who remember the original.
This will mean more business for our local suppliers and more clients for the chippy, pup, shop and take away as well as totally renovating and making good what has been an eyesore for a number of years. So we hope the wider community will see it as a positive for the village. You may have noticed there are now no cars parked on the road by High Adventure, this is because the farm sold us a piece of land to use for car parking. Now I heard as many people say they liked the fact the cars were there as it slowed traffic as I heard people disliking the fact they were there but we're glad to have off street parking as it costs less in wing mirrors! The area in front of 'The Nook' has already been tarmac'd to provide extra parking so, for better or worse, we won't be spilling out onto the road again.
So now you know
