The Mildenhall community help to name its new care home

Company news

The local Mildenhall community have helped to name the new care home for the town. Care UK’s competition attracted over 15 entries and Councillor Alan Murray, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Care and Chris Hopkinson, Care UK’s Operations Director, have selected three finalists.

They are ‘Mildenhall House’, nominated by Maureen Smith, a resident from Wamil Court, Mildenhall; ‘Milden Lodge’, proposed by Michelle Hart, a Care UK colleague from Mildenhall and finally ‘Heathfield Care Home’, suggested by Mary Butcher from Bury St Edmunds.  They all received £100 shopping vouchers which were presented at Wamil Court care home in Mildenhall on 6th June.

Chris Hopkinson, Regional Operations Director at Care UK, said: “As a new and valuable service for the area it’s fantastic to have the community involved in the development process.”

Cllr Alan Murray, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Care said: Cllr Alan Murray, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Care said: “We received a number of very interesting suggestions and I would like to thank all those that got involved. These new developments will be people’s homes and therefore it is only right that they are involved in the naming them.” 

A final choice of the name for the home will be made by Care UK in partnership with Suffolk County Council in the coming weeks. Four more ‘give our home a name’ competitions are still to be held across the county. Look out for further details of this at www.careuk.com/giveourhomeaname
