Launch of Restoration of Iden Manor Nursing Home - Orangery Appeal

Iden Manor Nursing Home is throwing open its doors on the 14th July, between 14.00 and 16.30 for its Annual Summer Fete. Come and enjoy a walk in our grounds, visit the house and sample our many stalls selling locally made products, clothing, health & wellness items, ice cream and sweets together with games and activities, a bouncy castle, live music, barbecue, a fire engine and including a fully licensed bar. Entrance is free and there is ample car parking.

The Fete marks the launch of our appeal to raise funds to restore the architecturally unique orangery which is part of this historically important building. The purpose of the orangery is to provide a sense of opulence (housing exotic plants sheltered from the inclement weather) coupled with a sense of space and much needed light for residents. A refuge from the conditions outside, there is a sense of Victorian charm that we want to encourage for residents of Iden Manor, providing a focal point for activities including horticulture, games and exercises. The residents at Iden Manor have often mentioned how wonderful it will be when the waterfall feature within the orangery is working too as this will add an extra dimension to this beautiful and much loved building.

Umbreen David, General Manager, says "The vision for the orangery is that it will be somewhere the residents can enjoy all year round, a restoration of a unique piece of history, as well as it becoming a venue for community events in Staplehurst. We want to encourage people and businesses from the village to come and see the orangery and become part of the next chapter in its history". The orangery was in decline when the building was converted to a Nursing Home in 2003 and requires around £100,000 to restore it to its former glory. It is hoped this will be done in two phases starting with the roof and then the glazed windows and doors in the second phase.

Iden Manor offers nursing care, dementia care, residential care and day care for both the elderly and younger adults. The Home was recently rated as good in all five domains by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and, as well as being a placement for student nurses, offers volunteering opportunities to people of all ages, especially those considering a career in health or social care. The Home employs approximately 50 dedicated members of staff many of who are based locally to Iden Manor Nursing Home.
