She added: "It’s wonderful to be working in such a stunning environment where we will focus on building a community that is kind, caring and compassionate; our home will be a happy home filled with laughter."

Richard House is the first care home developed by the group from concept to completion.

Steve Hopkins, 68, lives next to the site and was able to watch it develop from building works until the open day, when he was invited to go and look around.

Steve has a special connection with Richard House as he remembers the Queen Mother opening the original care home on the site, Chandos House, in 1963. He has lived on Gorse Road for more than 60 years.

Care manager, Sharon Dickinson, said: "It was fabulous to meet Steve and show him around our beautiful home. Richard House has made a lovely friend in Steve, we love listening to his stories.

"Steve will be a special guest at the home’s official open day later in the year and invited to other events. He will always be welcome at our home."
