WORK to created the new Julia's House hospice in Devizes is going to plan. And a new aerial video now shows what is happening on the site at Browfort, off Bath Road.

The former Kennet and Avon Council building will become a three-bedroom hospice with day care and weekend respite - the first of its kind in Wiltshire.

Work by Wates Construction is on schedule for the hospice to open in the spring of next year.

This autumn Julia’s House will start looking for staff to join the team in preparation for the official opening.

Meanwhile the charity is already helping families in Wiltshire by sending carers and nurses into homes so parents can have a much needed break from looking after children who often need 24-hour supervision.
