Tennyson Wharf is winning name for new care home

The name of the new care home on Park Lane in Burton Waters has been chosen through a naming competition launched within the local community and the winning entry is Tennyson Wharf.

A local man, Matthew Gillett, is the lucky winner and he has received a cheque for £500 which he has chosen to donate to local group, Witham Hill Gymnastics Club. Roy put forward the name of Tennyson Wharf as the poet Lord Tennyson grew up in this part of Lincolnshire.

Phil Lloyd, Divisional Director at Barchester, said: “Congratulations to Matthew for winning the naming competition and the cheque presentation will be arranged in the next few weeks. The name is befitting as Lord Tennyson grew up in Lincolnshire and I know we have lots of poetry lovers living in Barchester homes throughout the region.”

“At Barchester we pride ourselves on building excellent relationships within the local community and our new home is no different. We are also keen to speak with people looking for a career in the social care sector as a home of this size creates about 100 jobs and we offer great development opportunities as a top employer.”

Tennyson Wharf Care Home is located opposite the beautiful Burton Waters marina which offers stunning views of the boats and yachts on show as well as the Lincolnshire countryside. Once open in January, the new home will offer high-quality residential, nursing and dementia care.

The show suite will open this October and will provide further information about the personlised care and rooms available. For more information call 01522 848747 or visit www.barchester.com.
