Sue Ryder Care – Wheatfields Hospice

I can only review one aspect of Wheatfields Hospice as I have only experienced the brick-a-brack sale they have twice a week to raise money, and not the care home element of it.

Formalities aside, I can now express my utter joy in sharing this charity shop style gem with all the Yelp readers. It is AMAZING! It is open at very odd times so some planning is required but is basically made up of a few small warehouse type buildings and a few large porter cabins and is a bargain hunters DREAM. One section houses second (or more) hand furniture like tables and sofas, and old bike parts. I picked up a large wooden mirror from here for only a few quid a while ago. Then there is a large section dedicated to clothing of all kinds. In fits of creativity I have raided this place for old clothes to cut up and turn into new clothes. Next to this there is book section with most books priced in true charity shop style at only 50p each, maybe a pound for a hardback. And there is even more – a room dedicated to junk of all kinds – plated, jars, old glasses, broken umbrellas, vases, trays, ornamental bits of glass. the list goes on. Basically any of the useless items you re likely to find in your granny s house amongst which are lying some glorious treasures. And finally, if you feel totally worn out by all this browsing there is a tea room with tea, coffee and home made cake – also a perfect place to hobnob with the local OAPs. So, finally, this is a great place to get down to if you ve moved into a new house and are looking for some cheap furniture or anything else second hand.

PEX REPIPE SPECIALIST

Uponor Pex Repipe – The World’s First, Best, And Most Widely Used System For Single Family Homes And Residential Units.

What is PEX?

PEX is an acronym for crosslinked polyethylene. It is a flexible, durable, proven piping product that has been used in plumbing systems for more than 20 years. PEX tubing won’t pit, scale or corrode and, because of its flexibility, it also offers potential freeze-damage protection.

Residential Commercial Pex Plumbing. Call Toll Free 877-473-7473

Uponor Pex plumbing systems feature PEX-a tubing, which is considered the superior PEX tubing manufacturing method in the industry. PEX-a is the most flexible of all PEX types, and because of its shape and thermal memory, it can use ProPEX expansion fittings which are the only fitting system that actually gets stronger over time – making it highly leak resistant.

1) Repiping in a home begins at the transition point.

2) The transition point is the point where the potable water system enters the building from the exterior of the building.

3) Repiping a potable water system means you totally abandon the existing potable system and replace it with a new system.

4) The first step in repiping your home is masking or “covering” the floors, and this must be completed before the walls are masked off. This overlap “ enveloped ” system allows the plastic sheeting to be rolled up in one continuous motion.

5) Cutting the sheetrock: You will be shocked at how little sheetrock has to be removed for the layout and installation of a new potable water system. A real Pex Plumber is an expert at HVAC, framing, plumbing, and electrical layout, and will lay out the home pex repipe in the most effective route. The better the repiper. the smaller and fewer the drywall holes!

6) A “GREEN REPIPE” potable water system refers to a Pex repipe potable system only – such as UPONOR or ZURN with corrosion resistant fittings. CPVC and copper systems are not green systems.

7) The drywall pieces that are removed must be used in the patching process as each texture is a little different in thickness. This gives you a uniform surface thickness as you start the repair process. Each piece goes back in the hole it came from.

8) Repipe with an approved material. There are currently three main materials used in pex repiping jobs across the US: copper pipe and fittings, CPVC pipe and fittings, and PEX repipe and fittings. (DO NOT USE CPVC, IT IS THE NEXT POLYBUTYLENE)

9) Repipe inspections must be performed by the local building inspectors after the repipe is completed, with the system under full water pressure.

10) The signed inspection card must be given to the homeowner after the PEX repipe inspection is completed.

11) Drywall repair begins after all the necessary backing has been installed. Backing supports the drywall pieces that were removed to access the potable water pipes and accommodate the repiping of a new Pex repipe or copper potable water system.

12) The fiberglass mesh tape must be used 100% of the time.

13) The patches must be pre-filled with quick set patching compound. The compound comes in 18lb bags, and because it is a powder, it must be mixed with water. This locks the perimeter of each patch and will make the area of the patch stronger than it was before the work process began. The reason this is important is that when you close the doors in the house, the walls flex just a little bit, and if you do not perform this method of repair, the patch will fracture over time from the flex/vibration caused by shutting the doors.

14) Do not coat the drywall patches with regular all-purpose joint compound on the repipe patches.This is a common practice and the patches will crack later 100% of the time, even if it’s years later.

15) Coat all the repipe drywall patches with quick set patching compound only. USG will do and you can find it at any home and hardware store, or you will have fractures in the walls at the patch locations.

16) Float all the walls with quick set patching compound and use a 12″ drywall knife and stagger each coat until the walls become smooth and flat. The next step is wet sanding the patches and this must be done if you want the patches to blend in perfectly after the texture is applied. The reason you’ve seen bad patches in the past is that repairmen do not know how to “kill the edges.” This is an old drywall term that means you must do the detail wet sanding work and there is no short cut.

17) Texture to match the existing texture, and this is not as easy as you might think. This is a real art form for the few that know what they are doing. Also, if the texture is spray texture, you must sponge off the overspray for the texture to match. Nothing gives away the location of a patch more than overspray that is painted over and not “killing the edges.”

18) Paint to match the existing paint. All repipe companies color match the same way. They run down to their local hardware store and have the computer color matching done by the man behind the counter. This is beginner color matching. The proper way to color match is hand color matching. First, match the paint sheen. Second, computer match for the base color. Third, tint for color adjustment. Fourth, match the color and sheen after the paint sample has dried. Repeat if necessary. Did you know that the paint color on the wall after it dries will be different than the paint color while it is wet and in the can?

19) If you follow the basic repiping rules, after a very short time you will not be able to point out all the drywall patches from the repair. You will simply forget where the holes were due to the patches receiving the proper floating, texture and painting techniques. Your friends, neighbors, relatives, and even plumbing contractors will not be able to find the patches.

20) This is a basic guideline for a home repipe. and if done, properly you will have a repipe that was done as well as a repipe can be done.

At Integrity Repipe. we provide total abandonment of your existing potable system, and there are never hidden extras, and we don’t hire subcontractors. You’ll receive nothing but the finest, most complete and professional job in the industry. The scope will be for a lead-free and yellow brass -free potable “GREEN SYSTEM” with a full lifetime warranty that covers material and labor.

Sue Ryder’s Joyce Grove hospice in apartment conversion bid

Image caption The application to South Oxfordshire District Council is for 20 apartments for residential use

The future of a Sue Ryder hospice is in doubt after the charity applied for planning permission to convert the building into residential apartments.

The charity behind the Joyce Grove hospice, in Nettlebed, previously announced plans to move to the Townlands Community Hospital in Henley, but negotiations fell through .

The application to South Oxfordshire District Council is for 20 apartments.

But CEO Heidi Travis said the charity had “no immediate plans to move”.

‘Incredibly grateful’

She added: “We have taken this step to help inform us about all of the options that are available to us to enable the continued provision of the service for the long term.

“We will continue to deliver the same well regarded and respected services from this building.

“As always, we remain incredibly grateful for the community’s continued support, which enables us to be there for people at the most difficult time of their lives.”

The Edwardian property has 18 beds and stands in 11 hectares (27 acres) of land.

The Grade II-listed house was built by Robert Fleming, the grandfather of the James Bond author Ian Fleming.

People have been cared for at the house for more than 30 years but the charity cannot offer patients single rooms, and access via public transport is difficult.
