The Quiet Space, New Place Gardens

Quiet Space at Shakespeare's New Place Stratford on AvonWe are delighted to support Shakespeare’s New Place by helping to create a Quiet Space within the newly re-designed New Place Gardens.

We purchased the ‘Edstone’ summer house from Heart of England Group who kindly gave us a very generous discount and Matthew Payne from our Surveying & Commercial Team and David Clark from our Block Management Team gamely volunteered to undertake the construction.

Quiet Space at Shakespeare's New Place Stratford on AvonMatt and David worked hard all day on one of the hottest days of the year, in order to get the summer house completed.  Matt said afterwards  “No injuries were sustained, just minor dehydration due to weather!”  Well done chaps.

Shakespeare’s New Place opens on Saturday 20th August 2016 and visitors will be able to walk in Shakespeare’s footsteps and enjoy the fascinating new exhibition and commissioned artworks that evoke a real sense of family life at the time Shakespeare lived there until his death in 1616.

Quiet Space at Shakespeare's New Place Stratford on AvonThe Quiet space will be somewhere to retreat to within the garden for those wishing to ‘get away from it all’ for example school trips and pupils who need a non-stimulating environment to re-group or even breastfeeding mothers who need some privacy.

We are pleased to once again show our support for our local community and a big thank you to Matt & David from us all at Sheldon Bosley Knight.
