A NEW wing has been officially opened at Rivermead Care Home in Norton.

Cllr Elizabeth Shields was invited to open the extension, which will provide additional accommodation, including five ensuite bedrooms and a sitting room at the Scarborough Road home.

Cllr Shields said: “Thanks go to the Appledorn building firm who have been working on the project since August.

“I would also like to congratulate the manager Celine Poirot and to all who work here. I wish them the best in their endeavours.

“Families and friends can look forward with confidence to the well-being of their loved ones , who are in very competent hands.”
