Opening of RBLI Bradbury House, 31st May 2022, Aylesford Village, Maidstone

Bradbury House

Bradbury House is situated in RBLI’s village in Aylesford, Kent; a development originally formed in 1919 to provide support and care for WW1 veterans.

The newly refurbished care home, which has been purpose-built, provides state-of-the-art dementia and nursing care.

Bradbury House took two and a half years to renovate. All fifty rooms are fully equipped with en-suite facilities. There is also a cinema room, club lounge and large, private gardens, including a patio area.

Speeches

Speeches were given by Lisa Farmer, the CEO, and Nadra Ahmed OBE, DL, Chair of the National Care Association. Lady Colgrain, Lord Lieutenant of Kent, then officially opened Bradbury House.

After the proceedings, light refreshments were served.

I then had the opportunity to speak to Lisa Farmer, who expressed her thanks for the support given to the RBLI by Freemasons.

On 29th November 2019, a cheque for £135,000.00 was presented to the RBNI on behalf of East Kent and West Kent Freemasons.
