A new care home has thrown open its doors in Shefford, with the ribbon cut by town mayor Paul Mackin.
The mayor formally opened Oak Manor, a new MHA care home in Harvest Rise that can house 64 residents.
MHA says the new home off Ivel Road has created more than 70 new jobs, headed by experienced care professional Sharon Hipper.
She said: “We were thrilled to finally open the doors and welcome the community.
“The event was a huge success and to see so many faces mingling in our new facility was wonderful. It truly felt like the whole of Shefford was here.
“A huge thank you goes to the mayor for helping us to mark the occasion with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“Of course, the most important thing for us is that we’re now able to welcome our lovely new residents and get them settled into their new home. Just in time for Christmas!”
