New home starts work

April 8th 2011

Future residents at Priory View in Halstead say a turf-cutting ceremony made them feel like celebrities!

Ivy Mead, 95, and Irene Champion, 85, who will live at Priory View, on the former Priory Hall site, in Colchester Road, when it is completed in April 2012, were on hand to mark the start of the work.

Priory View will replace Halstead Lodge care home on Hedingham Road which will close once residents have transferred to their new home.

Carol Atkins, activity co-ordinator for Care UK, said: "We all felt like celebrities when we arrived, as the work came to a halt so we could take a look around. It really was a privilage to meet the site manager and the team who are making the new home a reality for us."

"I was encouraged to see how the building and the gardens will look, and I'm sure staff and residents alike will appreciate their new surroundings."
