Located within the New Forest, Hampshire, this four storey water tower was first constructed in the early 1900s to gravity feed water to the adjacent Fritham House. The attached cottage building housed the diesel generators which pumped water up to the top of the tower for storage. The tower was in very bad state of repair with a number of single glazed timber and metal framed windows which had deteriorated to the point of leaking.Save this picture!© Nigel RigdenPAD began the refurbishment by stripping away the existing furnishing and decor to reveal the water towers historic fabric, before proposing a number of contemporary interventions, including a large protruding window and sculptural steel staircase. The former acts like a camera lens, puncturing the building at first floor level, focusing one’s view out to the garden and beyond. A window seat is also formed creating a space to sit, soaking up light and prospect. The latter, a new sculptural steel stair, was designed as an industrial feature in the day room, rising up through the double height space to the bathroom on the fourth floor. Elsewhere, new minimally framed Crittall windows were designed and installed to maximise natural light and improve the buildings thermal performance.Save this picture!© Nigel RigdenAs part of the renovation, a carefully selected pallet of materials complements the existing brick allowing the original architecture to be clearly expressed against the new additions. Furthermore, extensive cleaning was undertaken to refresh the buildings external walls and bring back the original brick’s colour. Save this picture!© Nigel RigdenSave this picture!Plans 2016 Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Rice Projects, Edward Rice “COPY” Projects Photographs Save this picture!© Nigel RigdenProject gallerySee allShow lessSpotlight: Frank GehryArchitecture NewsAD Classics: Smith House / Richard Meier & PartnersArchitecture Classics Share Photographs:  Nigel Rigden Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project BUILT ENGINEERS CopyAbout this officePAD StudioOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentAdaptive reuseUnited KingdomPublished on February 28, 2018Cite: “Lister Tower / PAD Studio” 28 Feb 2018.

News story: Funding boost for councils looking after asylum seeking children

first_img This Government is fully committed to helping the most vulnerable children affected by the migration crisis and that is why we have provided protection to over 34,600 children since 2010. I recognise the vital role local authorities play in this effort and that is why I have increased the funding available for looking after unaccompanied asylum seeking children by over £30 million. This funding will help make sure the Government and local authorities across the UK can continue to work together to support vulnerable children. A significant increase in funding for local authorities looking after unaccompanied asylum seeking children (UASC), has been announced today (8 May 2019) by the Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes.The change means that local authorities will be paid the same amount for every UASC that they look after, regardless of the child’s age or when they entered the UK. Local authorities will receive £114 for each child every day that they are in their care which equates to over £41,600 per year per child.Based on the number of UASC looked after by local authorities, the increase in funding will total over £30 million per year.This is the second time in less than 3 years the Home Office has significantly increased the funding available for the care of UASC.Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said: The announcement comes after the completion of a review into the funding for UASC, which involved consultation with a large number of local authorities, NGOs, the Association of Directors of Children’s Services and the Local Government Association.Local authorities will now be paid £114 per night for every UASC they support which is a 61% increase on the lowest rate that is currently paid.The substantial increase demonstrates the government’s commitment to helping local authorities supporting vulnerable asylum seeking children across the UK.Children’s social care is funded through the local government finance settlement and the Home Office contribution is in addition to this funding.Alongside the increase in funding and simplification of the process, the Home Office is working to reduce the time it takes to conclude UASC asylum cases. The Home Office is working with stakeholders to develop a new service standard to ensure a better prioritisation of cases.There is also ongoing work to progress the commitments the government made in the Safeguarding Strategy. For example, more information is being produced for children and their social workers about the asylum process.The government has continually shown its commitment to supporting vulnerable children affected by the migration crisis, as shown by the fact that the UK provided protection to over 6,600 children in 2018 and over 34,600 since the start of 2010.Further information on the funding arrangementsUnder current arrangements local authorities are awarded a different amount of money depending on the age of the child and when they arrived in the UK. This change will make the system simpler for councils and comes following consultation with local authorities.There are currently a range of rates, with UASC aged 16 or over attracting a rate of £71 or £91. According to latest published statistics, over 80% of UASC are aged 16 or over, which means that the vast majority of local authorities will benefit significantly from this uplift.last_img read more

Charmaine Mrwebi, dreaming and writing in Setswana

first_imgUnable to find books written in her mother tongue, telling stories that related to her life, Charmaine Mrwebi wrote her own – and set up a distribution platform for her own and other writers’ books.Charmaine Mrwebi uses her love of the performing arts to help kids in the Free State learn about their world. (Image: Charmaine Mrwebi)Sulaiman PhilipEveryone should read says Charmaine Mrwebi. The published author, librarian and founder of the Charmza Literary Club says: “Our people should visit our libraries and become friends of books. Remember, any person who reads books on a daily basis, develops listening skills. Reading helps learners and students to perform better at school.”Charmza Literary Club visits schools around Thaba ‘Nchu, her hometown, where she shares her love of reading and its importance through poetry readings and puppet shows. She wants to empower communities to be able to tell their stories in their own language. “We also teach adults the necessary writing steps on how to write their books, edit and publish them in their language.”Mrwebi uses her monthly school visits to identify young writers to mentor, to encourage them and let them know they are not working in isolation. Once they have been identified, Mrwebi will, “…donate books to these writers after they have formed their book clubs, poetry groups and reading clubs”.She says that these visits bring her the greatest joy, especially if she gets to tell stories in her mother tongue. “I love that the children can get to teach me new songs. Or tell me a story their grandmothers told them. The more books we read together or stories we tell the more they open up and feel safe sharing their experiences.”As an author and poet, she feels blessed to belong to a community that passes on lore, history and culture from one generation to the next. The world is blessed, she says, by having writers who share their love of words. “When each one teaches the other, eventually we are going to have a community of writers telling stories and contributing towards solutions in our country. I feel that I have to keep pushing and investing in the seed of literature continuously even in the midst of challenges.”Charmza Literary Club gives children the opportunity to tell stories in their mother tongue. (Image: Charmaine Mrwebi)Among her first published books was Mantlwane… Ga re Tshamekeng (Mantlwane Let Us Play) based on a game she played as a child. “Mantlwane was a game I played as a child. It helps to build your imagination, it moulded who I am today. Children have so many distractions today that we are losing that ability to build whole worlds.”Travel while standing stillGrowing up in Thaba ‘Nchu, Mrwebi was a voracious reader. She has often spoken about how reading allowed her to travel the world without leaving her home. “There was one library in Thaba ‘Nchu and no mall. The first time I even heard about this thing called a mall was in a book. That is an important lesson I share. It does not matter where you come from, the world does not need to be a mystery. Or strange.”But she yearned to find books written in Setswana, her mother tongue, about her own experiences. She believes it’s important to read, and write, your own literature. Writers, she says, think and dream in their mother tongue and something is lost when it is translated. Desperate to share her culture with the world, she has self-published four books in her mother tongue. “In the mother tongue a writer’s message is clear. In translation, something is lost.”The desire to get more mother tongue books into print was the acorn that grew into Charmza Literary Club, her publishing business. Charmza is, as she explains, one house with many rooms that include publishing, her storytelling school visits, her poetry workshops and the work she does with the Performing Arts Council of the Free State.“When I published my first book I thought book stores and distributors would jump to stock it. When that did not happen, I needed to create a platform to distribute my book so I created Charmza. I’ve got my books and the authors we publish out because we needed to learn how to be persistent and innovative.”She is hopeful that, like her, there is a young Setswana writer who will be inspired to tell their own story. And who is Mrwebi inspired by? There is her grandmother of course, Ellen Kuzwayo, author of Call Me Woman.Without missing a beat, however, she says Buchi Emecheta, the Nigerian author of The Bride Price and The Joys of Motherhood. “Despite all her challenges – a single woman in a foreign country; raising four kids. Unemployed. She rose above it all. Her writing, her love of books lifted her up.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
