At the end of October 2016, Granada ITV News came to the site of the Lee Rigby House to film a short feature.
Lyn and Ian came, and they brought Carol Valentine, the mother of a soldier from the same regiment as Lee who was lost in Afghanistan, and Murray Richards, a Veteran of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.
The ITV reporter, Amy Welch, and the camerman spent many hours here, filming both the Lee Rigby House and the Lee Rigby Lodge, but sadly, their segment was only allowed enough air-time to feature the House.
An interview with Murray Richards was also filmed, which couldn’t be fitted into the time available, during which he remarked upon how the House and Lodge would provide the perfect get-away for recovery from PTSD to begin. “I found that just getting a good night’s sleep was impossible, but it is an essential first step towards recovering, and this place is just perfect – it’s going to be of immense value to the veterans and families who come here.”
