Holmside Residential Care Home has had its 39 bedrooms and other parts of its interior renovated as part of the biggest upgrade in its 27-year history.

The Station Road home’s owner, the Ailantus Group, has also given its garden and courtyard a makeover.

Manager Carole Woodhouse said: “The whole place has been remodelled with this investment, and it really shows.

“It looks so much more homely now, with all rooms giving residents the most comfortable experience possible.

“The outside matches the inside now, and the gardens are as relaxing as the bedrooms.

“A few of our residents have said how lovely the atmosphere here is, and it’s great to hear for the staff.”

The home is holding an open day and craft fair on Sunday, May 1, from noon to 4pm.
