This impressive aerial picture shows the fast progress of Norfolk’s newest children’s hospice.

The nook hospice, off Pigot Lane in Framingham Earl, will replace East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) 26-year-old Quidenham base.

Building work started on the nook, which costs £10m, in November last year.

EACH launched an appeal in November 2014 to raise £10m for its new hospice and so far over £7m has been raised through fundraising efforts across Norfolk.

The aerial picture was taken by Mike Page, who has documented the build since it began.

It is hoped the nook will be finished by March next year in preparation for children with life-threatening conditions and their families that summer.

The nook will be purpose-built on one level with a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room, therapy rooms, a music studio, an outdoor play area and family support group space.

Visit www.each.org.uk/the-nook for information on how to support the appeal.
