However, the company also generously spared some time to answer a plea for help with a very hot issue at Oakhaven’s Coates Centre. Anyone who visits the Coates Centre, located in the grounds at Oakhaven Hospice in Lymington, remarks on what a light and airy space it is. e Hub, where visitors can go, sit, have a cuppa and nd support if they are living with life limiting illness, carers or coping with bereavement, boasts full length glass windows looking out onto the gardens and a huge skylight in its ceiling. e skylight provides welcome light during winter months said. “It certainly has a wow factor as well as being so practical. Sanders Sails generosity will make a huge difference for visitors when they use the Centre. “Peter and Sanders Sails are but in bright sunshine and through summer months, the Hub can heat up like a greenhouse.

Peter’s ingenious solution took the form of three triangular sails which when fixed into the skylight recess form a nine pointed star, di using the light and already making the Hub feel cooler on sunny days. It was a bright sunny day when Peter visited the Centre to see the ‘star’ in place. “I am absolutely thrilled with our star,” Louise the real stars, having done so much over the past year through their mammoth contribution to protect healthcare workers” she continued. “We’re so grateful for their help.” The Coates Centre star A special SHOUT-OUT goes to Paulesh at WHSmith Local in Dibden Purlieu for kindly o ering to purchase two copies of Simon Chadwick ‘A Seal Swam in From the Sea’ for every Infant/Primary school in the Waterside and Marchwood Area .
