New therapy centre opens doors

Harwich and Manningtree Standard: New therapy centre opens doors New therapy centre opens doors

A CENTRE which will provide creative crafts and therapeutic activities has opened.

Acorn Village, which cares for adults with learning disabilities, converted a redundant old workshop into the new £750,000 centre to provide the sessions for their residents and the public.

The centre will provide art and music therapy, drama and also has a sensory garden.

Tendring Council leader Mick Page, chairman Val Guglielmi, councillor Carlo Guglielmi and Manningtree mayor Lee Lay-Flurrie all attended the opening last Wednesday.

The ribbon was cut by Don Fisher, whose widow Margaret worked at Acorn Village for many years but passed away before the centre was finished.

Heather Ablett, from Acorn Village, said: “We are extremely grateful to everyone who has made this possible.”
