The sites construction team were joined recently by Hallmark Care Homes Managing Director Ram Goyal and the Mayor, Councillor Dorothy Ross-Tomlin to mark the next stage of the build as the last roof tile was officially laid.
Banstead Manor Care Home is being built at a cost of £8 million across a one acre site on Brighton Road by specialist care contractor, Lawrence Baker.
The home when opened will provide a spacious, luxurious and sociable environment where family members are encouraged to spend time in the home, participate in activities and spend time with their loved ones.
Facilities at the home will include; a state-of-the-art cinema, luxurious hairdressers, therapy room and café. Each bedroom will be elegantly furnished, have an en-suite bathroom and those on the ground floor will have access to their own patio.
Other communal areas will include; an interactive kitchen where residents can assist in the preparation of meals and landscaped gardens designed by late, award-winning landscape architect, David Fountain.
Managing Director of Hallmark Care Homes, Ram Goyal said: “We are really excited to be opening a brand new care home in Banstead and look forward to providing high-quality relationship-centred care to the community.
“Our new home will provide residents with a place where they feel safe and supported to live an active and fulfilled life.”
Stefanie Anderson commented: “I’m delighted to have won the Race to Skye. I admire the brand in so many ways so I am incredibly grateful to have been a part of the experience and on top of it, won! The competition was tough and everybody presented amazing serves and real originality behind their stories. This is just an amazing way to round off the trip and I’m thrilled to return and carry the Talisker torch.”
Scottish Malts Ambassador at Diageo Reserve, Stevie Martin added: “Single malt whisky is fast becoming a main stay for the finest cocktail bartenders in the country. We had exceptional drinks and memorable stories from all seven finalists as well as an incredible few days travelling the Scottish wilderness. Our winner, Stefanie Anderson from the Bon Vivant in Edinburgh, performed incredibly well across all four challenges and we are looking forward to working with her on Talisker single malt whisky moving forward.”
