The mayor of Alton has cut the ribbon to a ten-bedroom extension to a care home in Four Marks.

Guests were treated to entertainment from a singer and local magician during a tour of Belford House Care Home.

Cllr Annette Eyre had the honour of opening the extension to the Hartford care home before pupils from Four Marks Primary School received prizes for naming some of its corridors.

The corridor names are: The Daffodil Wing, The Milne Manor, The Watercress Wing, The Hawthorne Wing, The Aviation Wing and The Rachel Hudson Wing. 

The ten bedrooms in the new extension offer clean and crisp interiors, ready to be personalised by those living in them. 

Belford House offers residential, dementia, respite break and end of life care.

The firm’s ethos is ‘Creating Caring Communities’ where a philosophy of care is underpinned by creating homes that are kind and welcoming to everyone.
