The people of Sutton Coldfield were invited to celebrate the grand launch of the town’s newest care home, opened by the Mayor of Sutton Coldfield, Derrick Griffin.
The local community enjoyed a host of entertainment at Mercia Grange, as part of its official opening celebrations.
The team was joined by the Mayor of the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, Derrick Griffin, who cut the ribbon alongside the care home’s first resident Raymond Meacheam, and Care UK’s operations director, Geoff Edwards.
Guests were entertained by local 1940s singer, Lula May, and a Glenn Miller tribute band, as well as professional magician, Russ Styler. There was plenty of fun activities for all, including pet therapy with Elizabeth Scott, a special baking demonstration, and a trip to the movies in the cinema room.
Mercia Grange home manager, Shirley Gibbs, said: “We were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Royal Sutton Coldfield, Derrick Griffin, to officially open the home and mark this important milestone. We would also like to thank Ray, the residents and everyone who visited and helped make this such a special day.
“Since we opened the doors to Mercia Grange, the residents and their families have been at the heart of everything we do. It was fantastic to welcome so many local people to the home, our grand launch really was a day to remember.”
