We help people interact with others, receive support, information and guidance and partake in a wide range of therapeutic and enjoyable activities within the School House and wider afield.

The School House Café also encourages people to come to the area and provides a facility for those who work nearby or are passing through.

Raveningham is a traditional rural Estate situated south of Norwich in South Norfolk. It has been home to the Bacon family since 1735.

The principal house, Raveningham Hall, was built around 1750 by an unknown architect for Sir Edmund Bacon the 8th and 9th Baronet. The Hall is Grade II* listed and home to Sir Nicholas Bacon the 14th and 15th Baronet and his family.

The Gardens are set out as the Edwardian plans with large herbaceous borders surrounding a Victorian walled kitchen garden. In the 1960s the planting was enhanced by the inspiration of Priscilla, Lady Bacon an energetic plantswoman who collected many rare species from around the world transforming the garden over 50 years. The walled kitchen garden was brought back to full working order in the last 20 years and is now producing fruit and vegetables for the House. There is a fine late 19th century Boulton and Paul range of glasshouses, stocked conservatory and melon pits, all in working order.

A Millennium project by Nicholas Bacon to build a lake on the North side of the House is now firmly established as is an Arboretum that was planted after the destruction of a wood in the 1987 gale; this gave an opportunity to plant a large variety of trees and shrubs under a plan designed by the eminent plantsman Roy Lancaster

New additions to the garden include a Herb Garden, a Stumpery and a garden designed around Francis Bacon’s essays based on the passage of time. Sculptures by Susan Bacon add to the landscape which is surrounded by an 18th century Park with grand oaks of great age.

The main specialities of the garden are snowdrops followed by bulbs in early spring, later in the season agapanthus are a main feature. Throughout the year the parkland setting provides a glorious backdrop to to the Hall and the main garden.

The gardens are mostly accessible to wheelchair/motability scooter users, except when the ground is very wet.

Cleaners R Us East Anglia Ltd is run by Leigh and Russy Cole along with Karen Mann who is the Office Manager. We have been providing a trusted cleaning services in Norfolk and North Suffolk since 2003.  We provide reliable, police checked, vetted, insured, honest and dedicated cleaners to householders in need of assistance all over Norfolk and North Suffolk, at an affordable cost.

Our vetting process is, we believe, second to none.  It involves a personal visit by us to the cleaner’s home, the comprehensive checking of ID, the taking up of references, a police-check, then a visit by the cleaner to our own home where fundamental cleaning practices are tested and reinforced, together with expected behaviour and health and safety issues. 

On top of all that, the householder then gets a chance to meet the cleaner before the cleaner becomes their cleaner.  That cleaner then remains their cleaner on a regular basis.

The cleaners benefit by being matched to the specific requirements of each householder, thus ensuring that everyone is happy.  Eg ironing and bed-making can also be a part of the service, if required.

Although we have clients who have been with us almost from when we started and are still receiving a regular weekly clean, we recognise that things change and so we are now able to also offer fortnightly and monthly cleaning services as well.  If circumstances change the other way and more hours are required then we are happy to help.

If you have any questions at any time, then again, we are happy to help.

We also turn our hand to one-off cleans, Spring-cleans, deep cleans and end of tenancy cleans on occasion as and when the need arises.
