Local Care Home Celebrates Start of a New Era

Glebefields, Barchester Healthcare’s newly refurbished care home in Drayton, Banbury held a Grand Opening event to celebrate the start of a new era, following significant investment to the home.

Visitors were welcomed to view the home’s stylish new interior and take a tour of the home at the VIP event on Saturday 14th May, 2022. Nestled in the charming village of Drayton near Banbury, Glebefields is an impressive stone-built former rectory, overlooking miles of countryside in an area known for its outstanding natural beauty, including the adjacent Norman Parish Church of St. Peter.

The home remained open, and welcoming residents throughout the major refurbishment which started on 17th May 2021 and completed in April 2022. We officially opened the doors in sunshine and style, with a VIP ribbon cutting ceremony performed by the Mayor of Banbury; Councillor Shaida Hussain.

Nisha Shaji, Glebefields General Manager said: “The home is looking better than ever after the recent investment and it was a pleasure to showcase the elegant new interior at the Grand Opening event. My door is always open and anyone who couldn’t make it to the Open Day is very welcome to drop by for a cup of tea any other day instead.”

Speaking at the opening event, Councillor Shaida Hussain, said: “I am delighted to be here to officially open Glebefields care home, it’s wonderful that Barchester is investing with such confidence in the future of care in the county – that investment will ensure, not only top quality facilities, up-to-date accommodation and high standards of care, but also jobs, trainings and a boost to the local economy.”
