Whittle Hall Community Open Day
Formerly opened by the first ever L&M Healthcare resident at Gainsborough House, the lovely Pearl, who is now aged 91, Whittle Hall opened its doors to hundreds of local residents who were greeted with a glass of Prosecco, taken on a full tour of the facilities and then treated to an Alice in Wonderland themed afternoon tea while being entertained by a five-piece band and Charleston dancers.
The day had a lovely atmosphere and most people were amazed at the standard of the facilities and luxurious decor. We also had an official visit by the Deputy Mayor of Warrington, Karen Mundry, accompanied by her consort Jason, who was quite emotional when she walked into the general nursing dining room. She said, ‘It was like something you’d expect to find on a cruise ship and definitely not your typical nursing home’. As director Jeanne Davies thanked everyone for coming and thanked staff for their all hard work in pulling it together, the Deputy Mayor proposed a toast, ‘when you come into Whittle Hall you are like a butterfly, come in here to have a rest, but never forget to fly’ she said.
It was a fabulous day, the children left with faces painted and lots of balloons with most of the adults left asking when they could move in! If you missed the open day and would like to have your own personal tour, please feel free to call Whittle Hall directly and our staff will be only too pleased to show you around.
