Neighbours of Timken Grange were treated to a select preview of the new luxury residential and dementia care home due to open in January 2018. Rachel Cadd and her team welcomed friendly local faces to the Poppy Field Farm where everyone enjoyed an informal evening learning about the new home.
There is significant interest in the home which has been built on the former Timken site. British Timken has been such a prominent and integral part of the Duston community it was not surprising that so many braved the cold weather to make the visit. Many of the visitors were ex employees of British Timken so it was fitting that Rachel Cadd, home manager, who’s own father worked at Timken was on hand to reminisce and share stories of the former factory.
Andrew Long and Chris Babington, owners of the new home were also on hand to meet the neighbours and answer any questions as well as provide details of the company’s commitment to delivering exceptional care in outstanding surroundings.
Ray Foster and his wife were the lucky winners of the Luxury Hamper and were delighted with their prize and were looking forward to enjoying the contents over the Christmas period.
Ann-Marie, Group Admissions Manager, managed the event and co-ordinated viewings of home ahead of the public opening. All in all, a great success for everyone involved not least the new neighbours and friends of Timken Grange.
