Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

VIS­I­TORS are in­vited to head to Hollins Park Care Home where an en­tire vil­lage has been built for its res­i­dents.

Care UK’s Hollins Park care home on Vic­to­ria Road will un­veil its new outdoor res­i­dents’ vil­lage on Fri­day, June 17, from mid­day un­til 3pm.

At 1pm, the Mayor of Mac­cles­field, Coun Alift Hare­wood-Jones, will per­form the rib­bon cut­ting to of­fi­cially open the new area of the gar­den at Hollins Park, which in­cludes three sum­mer houses con­verted into a pub, café and shop.

The new ameni­ties have been in­tro­duced fol­low­ing a do­na­tion from the late Doris Mars­den, a rel­a­tive of a for­mer res­i­dent, Alan Mars­den.

Julie Okhae, home man­ager at Hollins Park, said the event, which in­cludes live entertainment and a bar­be­cue, co­in­cides with Care Home Open Day.

She said: “Open­ing our doors also gives us a great op­por­tu­nity to show what life is re­ally like in a mod­ern care home; and we hope to change any pre­con­cep­tions peo­ple might have while also show­ing ev­ery­thing Hollins Park has to of­fer.”
