A council consultation at the end of this month will decide the future of two Berkshire care homes.

St Christopher’s and St David’s nursing and care home in Ascot Priory, which look after a combined 54 residents, have been operating for more than 30 years, the Bracknell News reports.

The homes are run by David Tanner and his family under a lease agreement with the Ascot Priory estate.

The estate’s trustees are now reviewing whether to sell the land as a result of the high maintenance costs of the Grade II listed building.

Mr Tanner said: David Tanner said: “We have been working closely with the trustees about the best way forward, which we believe will confirm the importance that people attach to both the care and prayer elements of this wonderful partnership remaining at the priory.

“The Charity Commission who ultimately have the statutory power to determine which options the trustees can pursue, are mindful of the need to hear from the people of Ascot and surrounding areas.

“We hope very much that all those who value the services our care provide will make their views known to both the trustees and the Charity Commission.”

The consultation is set to begin at the end of this month with a review to follow in November.
