Members of the public are being invited to help name a new care home which will be constructed on Aster Road in Ipswich.
Work on the new care home, which will be run by Care UK, starts this month and once construction is complete in summer 2014, it will be home for up to 80 older people from the Chantry and the wider Ipswich community.
Chris Hopkinson, Regional Operations Director at Care UK said: “We hope that local people will come up with interesting suggestions which will stand the test of time. We really hope this opportunity will fire people's imagination and creativity.”
He added: “Whether local people are inspired by famous figures of the county, key milestones in the town’s history or a family or community story, Care UK welcomes all suggestions and are looking forward to uncovering some interesting tales.”
Entry forms can be downloaded from www.careuk.com/giveourhomeaname. The deadline for entries is 20th May 2013 and the top suggestion made by a member of the public will receive a £100 ‘Love2Shop’ voucher. The final shortlist will feature suggestions from the public, the Care UK team and Care UK residents and their relatives, with a final choice being made in June.
Ipswich is a town full of historical and cultural tales; Chantry in particular has a colourful past. In the late 60’s a hoard of Roman era gold was uncovered whilst building new houses and in 1509 Chantry Park was founded by Edmund Daundy.
