Recently the Mayor of Rugby, Cllr Sally Bragg, officially opened our newly extended Cawston House as part of a special drinks party attended by residents and staff of Lime Tree Village.

The historic Cawston House is the social hub of our community and with the village continuing to grow we decided to enlarge the Edwardian building to create extra space for our residents.

Accompanied by her mother, Mrs Mary Stacey, Cllr Bragg officially cut the ribbon to celebrate the official opening and told guests: “This is five-star luxury. My mum is very envious and is probably going to go home and get her own house valued and on the market after today’s visit!

“On a more serious note, we are fortunate to live in an area of the UK where life spans are above the national average and it is easy to understand when there are places such as this which can only enhance this further.”

Cllr Bragg was given a personal tour of the village before joining the drinks party where she and her mother chatted with the 100-plus residents attending.

Our village manager Patrick Johnson added: “It was a real pleasure to welcome both the Mayor and her mother to the village. We are justly proud of Lime Tree and this latest extension enhances the facilities for residents even more.”
