Mayor joins Gildawood Court to open new Jubilee Suite

Local Mayor signing the visitors book at Gildawood Court Care Home

Gildawood Court Care Home recently celebrated the opening of its new ‘Jubilee Suite’ during a ceremony attended by the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, Councillor Jeff Clarke.

Guests joined Coun. Clarke at the home for the event on Thursday, 8th September, which saw them tour the suite’s newly refurbished 27 rooms and enjoy afternoon tea-themed refreshments.

In the run up to the opening, local school children were asked to create a piece of artwork to be displayed in the main living area of the suite, as well as help settling on its name.

The winning picture was created by four-year-old Darcie Wileman, from Battling Brook Primary School, who chose the name ‘Jubilee Suite’.

The new suite’s 27 bedrooms – the majority of which look out onto the private gardens – are spread across two floors and there is also a lounge and dining area.

Coun. Jeff Clarke, Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, said: “I am delighted to have had the opportunity to open the Jubilee Suite here at Gildawood Court. Given recent events, the name takes on a new poignancy but it is a beautiful suite and is very welcomed; it is just the type of facility we need in the area.

“I’m very impressed with the layout of the communal area and its design and decoration. I’m sure many people will be enjoying the fantastic facilities – and views – on offer at the Jubilee Suite for many years to come.”

The opening of the Jubilee Suite follows a successful summer for staff and residents at Gildawood Court, which also recently celebrated the results of its latest Care Quality Commission (CQC) review, as the home received an overall rating of ‘Good’.

Gildawood Court Home Manager, Hayley Rix, said: “We are so pleased that people from the local community, including the Mayor, were able to join us today, for the launch of our new suite. The Jubilee was a time of celebration and that is how we feel about this new opening – it’s an incredibly exciting time for us, especially as it follows the fantastic news of our recent CQC rating. We can’t wait to welcome future residents to come and stay with us in our stunning new suite.”
