Local Councillor, Mike Eyles joined Cold Springs Park care home on Scaws Drive – part of HC-One, the kind care company – for a day filled with music, laughter and art to celebrate the seventh annual Care Home Open Day.

Care Home Open Day is a national event that gives local people the opportunity to learn more about the care services at the heart of their community. This year’s theme was ‘Celebrating Art in Care,’ with HC-One launching a national Art Competition to encourage, Residents, their loved ones, colleagues and neighbours to unleash their creativity and design their own masterpiece.

Representatives from Appleby Heritage also visited Cold Springs Park to unveil the centrepiece of the home’s art display, which is a beautiful sunflower mosaic created by the home’s Residents. The mosaic is now proudly displayed in the reception area of Cold Springs Park.

Pupils from Beaconside C of E Primary School’s band provided live musical entertainment for guests during the celebrations which was followed by afternoon cream tea.

Cold Springs Park Home Manager, Jacqueline Johnstone said: “What a special Care Home Open Day which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of our Residents and the whole team at Cold Springs Park.

“I would like to thank everyone for coming along to our event and taking part in the celebrations, especially, Cllr Mike Eyles and the Appleby Heritage.”

HC-One Managing Director, Stephen Butterworth said: “Cold Springs Park celebrations sound great! Care Home Open Day provides a wonderful opportunity for HC-One care homes to open their doors and welcome members of the local community.”

HC-One is proud of achieving a 9.6/10 average rating on the sector’s leading care home comparison website The high rating puts HC-One homes into the very best company in the care home sector, committed to providing the kindest care to Residents.
