The Nook Appeal

Set in the beautiful surroundings of a peaceful country estate, it is difficult at first to understand why bosses from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) want to leave their site in south Norfolk.

The listed red-brick building has been home to Norfolk’s only children’s hospice for more than 23 years.

However, it is only when you enter the hospice that it begins to become apparent why EACH has outgrown its site in Quidenham.

However, the prospect of a £10m purpose-built hospice at Framingham Earl is one that excites staff, which would be bigger and provide services that Quidenham is not able to provide.
