The East Anglia RFCA Estates team have much improved the changing rooms at Peterborough Army Reserve Centre, with funding generated by the RFCA.
The team have increased the number of showers at the Army Reserve Centre from 4 to 6 and added private changing areas to make the space more practical for the reservists that train there.
By improving the layout of the male ablutions, the team created a welcome divide between the washing facilities and the WC area as well as increasing the number of showers by 50% for reservists there. Refurbishment works included decoration and the installation of new lighting, flooring, and sanitary ware. One of the additional showers was fitted in the female changing room and another in the male changing room.
WO2 Rich Morson is the RQMS for 158 Regiment RLC at Peterborough Army Reserve Centre. Rich said: “We’re really happy with the upgraded washrooms, it’s a really nice space now.”
The reservists of 158 Regiment RLC are based out of Peterborough, Bedford, Ipswich and Colchester in the Eastern Region, with more locations in the East Midlands. For more information about the regiment and its people, visit their page on army.mod.uk.
Peterborough ARC is situated in a central location nearby to a stadium and light industrial area with good access links. The front building is an attractive space, well-maintained to preserve its original charm and features, such as an ornate staircase and bright Officers’ Mess. Recently, some of the roofing on the site was replaced as part of the schedule of works managed by the RFCA Estates team, who look after 500 buildings across 190 sites in the region.
