The care home is set to open in April

The finishing touches are being put into a new 66-bed care home.

Mayor of Bexley Eileen Pallen visited Heathfield Court in Northumberland Heath last week for a special ‘topping out’ ceremony to usher in the new build.

Donning her high-vis jacket, the Bexley councillor helped plant a tree on the home’s outdoor terrace.

“I’m hugely impressed with the quality of the environment and facilities,” said Mayor Pallen.

“I look forward to being invited back to meet the new residents who have chosen to make this their new home in the spring.”

So far 28 people are already on the home’s waiting list.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
