Buildings that lie idle or are being considered for demolition could be repurposed and adapted to provide much needed services for the veteran community.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, a minute’s silence is observed and dedicated to those soldiers who died fighting in the nation’s wars.
Friends of Callan Park wish to acknowledge the sacrifice of all who served in all conflicts.
Callan Park and Broughton Hall accommodated two important military hospitals and was a place of respite and recovery for many veterans. The last veterans’ wards were closed in 2008 and the surviving veterans moved out. Friends of Callan Park believe the community would welcome the establishment of modern veterans’ rehabilitation and mental health services at Callan Park.
Buildings that lie idle or are being considered for demolition could be repurposed and adapted to provide much needed services for the veteran community. The Friends are actively advocating with stakeholders in the veterans’ care sector to pursue the potential for such services in the ideally therapeutic environment of the Callan Park landscape.
