Company news

People in Kingston Vale enjoyed a ‘Through the Ages’ spectacular at Care UK’s newest home, Sherwood Grange, to celebrate its official opening.

Family, friends, members of the local community and pupils from Robin Hood Primary School visited the home to celebrate its grand launch in true style. The day also marked Care Home Open Day, a national initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities.

Councillor Rowena Bass, deputy mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames, attended as a special guest to perform the ribbon cutting and officially open the home.

A variety of family-friendly activities took place, including guided tours, a question and answer session with the home manager and entertainment from Twin Tub, a live party band, who performed music from throughout the decades.

Pupils from the local school joined residents and visitors for a fun game of skittles and everyone worked together to create decorated paper crowns in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Rick Mayne, home manager at Sherwood Grange, said: “As with everything we do at Sherwood Grange, residents and their families were at the heart of our launch celebrations and we were delighted to have a visit from the deputy mayor to officially open the home. It was fantastic to welcome so many local people and the live entertainment helped to bring the generations together.”

Sherwood Grange offers a range of care services for older people, including residential and specialist dementia care, short term respite, palliative and sensitive end of life care.
