A brand new hospice which is being built for South East Essex is starting to become more of a reality as construction hits the halfway point.
Havens Hospices started building a new Fair Havens Hospice opposite Priory Park in October 2018 and it has been progressing nicely. Barnes Construction who are building the hospice which will care for patients from across Southend, Rochford and Castle Point have recently finished installing the roof trusses for the In-Patient Unit and are now setting their sights on the Day Hospice and Wellbeing centre.
Havens Hospices Acting CEO, Trevor Johnson said, “I got to visit the site last week and it is amazing how far the build has progressed already - the frames are all up, roof trusses are being constructed, and brick walls are starting to emerge from the ground. Everyone at Havens is incredibly grateful for the support we’ve received from the community so far; every donation you’ve made is getting us closer to securing the future of hospice care. So, Thank You.”
