A big thank you to all who attended our recent Autumn Fair, the total raised on the day was £1090 which will be used by the residents for future events including events planned for the Christmas party for both homes.

Both homes residents, managers and their staff teams worked hard to ensure the Fair was a success.

Following an open day on 10th June the refurbished home opened its doors to new residents on Monday 16th June 2014.

Within weeks the home was full and had a waiting list.

The owners were quoted as saying...

“We are delighted to be able to build on the good reputation we had at Westwinds which has allowed us to expand our services within the Fairways site. The success has been made possible by the hard work and dedication of our Managers and their staff teams. We will be working hard to continue expanding and hope to have the whole site developed within a 2 year period”
