The Mayor of Ashford, Councillor Mrs Jessamy Blanford, joined the Care UK team and representatives from construction partner, Jenner Group, for a ‘topping out’ ceremony at Montfort Manor, on Kennington Road.

The purpose-built care home – which is expected to welcome its first residents in autumn 2019 – will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 68 older people, with facilities including its own cinema, hairdressing salon and café.

Gary Renton, construction project manager for Care UK, said: “As the latest addition to a growing portfolio of residential care homes, the Ashford site represents a major investment for Care UK and reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town.

“I am delighted to have been a part of this milestone as we step ever-closer to opening the doors to the people of Ashford. We are honoured that the Mayor of Ashford was able to celebrate the occasion with us and look forward to welcoming her back to the care home once complete.”

Dean Elvidge, pre-construction director for Jenner Group, added: “It is a pleasure working with Care UK yet again to create a welcoming and fit-for-purpose home – we could not have asked for a more cohesive approach.

“We are proud to be delivering a high-quality facility for the local community that will welcome many residents for years to come.”

Councillor Mrs Jessamy Blanford said: “It was a privilege to be a part of this topping out ceremony, marking a milestone in the build of a fantastic facility which has been built with residents and families in mind. Ashford will benefit greatly from this state-of-the-art building that will be a welcome addition for the community, and I’m excited to continue to follow the progress of the care home”.
