Chippenham Lodge to Celebrate its 150th Birthday


Chippenham Lodge to Celebrate its 150th Birthday.

Chippenham Lodge, located in the suburb of Merivale in Christchurch, is celebrating its 150th birthday and launching a fundraising campaign to bring the building back from the brink in the aftermath of the Canterbury Earthquakes.

The house which was originally built in 1862 and has been attributed to architect Benjamin Mountfort. It is one building in a rare few built in the Gothic Revival style.

“With so many of our heritage buildings being demolished we feel it is our duty to restore this lovely home back to it's former glory” said Chippenham Lodge spokesperson Rebecca Bloomer. “We invite members of the press to join us in celebrating its 150th birthday and the launching of our fundraising campaign.”

The celebration will be made on the grounds of building at 51 Browns Road, on Saturday 24th of November 2012 from 3pm with cake being served at 4pm.

We'd also like to thank Original Foods Ltd for donating the cake and Leopard Coachlines Canterbury Brass for providing music.

ENDS
