The purpose-built service, which is Buntingford’s third care home, will provide a home for 66 elderly people requiring residential or dementia care on an all-inclusive basis.

Prior to the official ribbon cutting ceremony, Councillor Jeff Jones delivered a speech in which he highlighted the strong links already formed with the home and community and the opportunities that Layston Grove will bring to Buntingford and surrounding areas, including jobs for up to 70 local people.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, guests were given tours of the three-storey home, which includes cinema, library, English tea room, garden room, hair and beauty salon, lounges on every floor and landscaped gardens, as well as all bedrooms benefiting from en-suite facilities.

Home manager Sam Campbell said: “My team and I have now been in the home for a few weeks and we are so proud of the facilities.  It really is a home from home and we couldn’t wait to show everyone around!  We have all had a great day and now we are ready for our first residents to move in.”
