WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS DISGRACE AT THE FORMER NURSING HOME – THE GABLES IN IFIELD?

Last Saturday, we walked to the ‘hidden gem’ of Willoughby Fields Local Nature Reserve, but the enjoyable experience was blighted when we passed the burnt-out former nursing home The Gables in Ifield Green – left derelict and abandoned 11 years ago [2013] – major flooding/evacuation 16 years ago [2008].

The state of the place has to be seen to be believed – beyond a disgrace – with an orthopaedic chair on the front pavement and confidential patient files, old tables et al all over the front garden – which looked more like a bomb site.

Who is responsible for this mess?

Abandoned and derelict former nursing home – April 2024 [totally destroyed by fire – June 20 2024]
Orthopaedic chair on front pavement – April 2024

 

Confidential patient files strewn over front garden – April 2024
