Royal Opening for New Accommodation at Avon Tyrell
HRH the Princess Royal officially opened UK Youth's three new accommodation buildings at Avon Tyrell in the New Forest, Hampshire. Nigel Mansell OBE, President of the UK Youth charity for disabled children, accompanied the Princess. The new buildings were constructed in solid log by Reading-based Norwegian Log Buildings. 'The buildings were designed to meet the special needs of disabled youngsters,' says MD Nick Forrester. 'Fortunately, our manufacturing system makes it easy to construct this type of building quickly and economically.'
Avon Tyrell is UK Youth's activity and residential centre, with over 16,000 young people visiting each year to learn and enjoy climbing, canoeing, archery, abseiling, ropes, swimming, team building and personal development.
