Connaught Extension - Final Phase underway
We are pleased to announce that the final delivery phase of the Connaught Extension is now underway. Following revision of the budget due to Covid and Brexit all States of Alderney's Committees, as well as Policy and Resources Committee in Guernsey, have approved additional funds to complete the project.
A spokesperson for General Services Committee, whose project this is, said 'We are delighted that the Connaught Extension works can continue and provided the much-needed additional rooms and facilities for the care home. We have overcome many and varied challenges and would like to thank all parties involved who have worked together to enable this project to continue. We will continue of course to monitor the situation and funds. This final phase, the above ground structural build, is expected to be completed by end of 2022 if not sooner and we will keep the community informed.'
We would also like to say a big thank you to all the Connaught staff, residents and volunteers for their patience throughout these unprecedented delays.
