Marianne Andresen opening the new Baking House

Marianne Andresen opening the new Baking House

On Wednesday 6th June, our Baking House was formally opened.

Invited guests, students and staff joined together for the opening mid-afternoon. It started with an introduction to the development of the Nordisk Tun (Nordic Yard), pizzas freshly cooked in the wood-fired oven, speeches and musical performances (with a Swedish theme for their National Day).

We were delighted that Marianne Andresen and her children Johan, Eva and Birgitte were present at the opening with Marianne cutting the ribbon to mark the official opening.

Later in the afternoon, guests were invited to K2 for an introduction to projects run by students as part of our Humanitarian Pillar.

Thank you to everyone who helped fund, design, build and launch the Baking House. It promises to be a wonderful resource for students, staff, patients at RKHR, Leirskule and participants in our summer camps – a building that complements our Silent House on the Nordic Yard.
