Cloverleaf care home in Lincoln, part of Tanglewood Care Homes, was officially opened on Saturday (21st September) by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, Mr Toby Dennis.
Over 250 people including the home’s staff, residents and relatives celebrated the official opening of Cloverleaf – a state-of-the-art 72-bed care home on Long Leys Road in Lincoln.
The event was a joint celebration to commemorate the grand opening of Cloverleaf and mark 30 years of Tanglewood.
“My wife Sarah and I were delighted to be included in such a special occasion,” said Mr Dennis.
“A carnival atmosphere had been created at the opening of Cloverleaf Care Home, which reflects Tanglewood’s level of respect for those they look after in such special surroundings. The care home is so impressive and has clearly achieved satisfaction and happiness for their residents.”
The official opening was organised by members of staff from across the group who all contributed to tasks ranging from the décor to the catering at the Caribbean-themed event.
Shirley Woods, Registered Manager at Cloverleaf care home, said: “We had a lovely day celebrating the official opening of the home with staff, residents, relatives and members of the community. During the day we had a steel band perform a repertoire of songs and activities including face painting and balloon making to keep the children entertained!
“There’s a real community feel amongst all of the team here at Tanglewood – and I’d like to thank each member of staff that helped with the event. I’d also like to say a big thank you to Tanglewood founder and director Tracy Ann Shelbourn; she is very caring about the culture and values that Tanglewood upholds and it’s thanks to her that we were all able to enjoy this wonderful occasion together!”
