A fun-filled open day and garden party to mark the official opening of Heath Lodge Community Haven on York Road has raised over £500 for the home.

Staff at the 30-bed care home, which is managed by Harrogate Neighbours and provides residential and specialist dementia care, arranged an afternoon of entertainment, including prize packed raffle & tombola, live music, games for all ages and homemade cake sale to welcome in the community.

Residents, relatives, local councilors, friends and members of North Yorkshire Council all attended to find out more about the care service available through Heath Lodge Community Haven.

Chief Operating Officer, Denise McEvoy said:

"The move to Boroughbridge is exciting and has already opened up so many opportunities to broaden our care for older people living in the community.

"In collaboration with Boroughbridge Community Care, we hope to provide additional services into the community, such as our award-winning meals on wheels in the not so distant future."
