First bricks laid at new Goole nursing home
Posted on 07 October 2011
People paying for care in Goole will soon have another option to choose from, with the first bricks being laid at a new nursing home.
Councillor Keith Moore performed the ceremony at Westfield Park, with the building set to house 56 residents and include a state-of-the-art cinema room, gym, shop, cafe, pub and hair and beauty salon.
Westfield Park was formerly known as Holland House, which was built to house offenders with personality disorders, but never opened, according to the report in the Yorkshire Post.
Councillor Moore, the chair of the Holland House Action Group campaign, told the newspaper: "It has been a tremendous renaissance since the Holland House Action Group's victory to have it reinstated as a nursing home. It was a long, hard struggle to run and win that campaign."
This follows news that people choosing a care home in Dunmurry will have more options thanks to the launch of a new 44-bed facility being opened, reports the Belfast Telegraph.
