Old BCA site topped out

VIPS, future residents, a local school and the construction team joined staff at Moorlands Lodge to celebrate the addition of the final roof beam at the new care home.

The event, known as a topping out ceremony, was held on Wednesday, July 6 at the former British Car Auctions (BCA) Expedier House site, which will be a Signature care home from October.

The company invited all residents who had already reserved a room, and they were honoured for their early involvement by having their initials added to a specially embossed finial a lead decoration placed on the final turret. Signature CEO Tom Newell presented each resident with a photograph of the finial as a keepsake.

And as well as VIPs and future residents, the care home also invited pupils from the neighbouring Stepping Stones school. The pupils marked the event by helping bury a time capsule which contained items that symbolise school life in the grounds of the care home.

Moorlands Lodge General Manager Creenagh Williamson said: Today is very special for a number of reasons, not least as it marks the first of many events that Moorlands Lodge and Stepping Stones will collaborate on, promoting inter-generational friendship.

Stepping Stones head teacher Neil Clark added: When the children meet and talk to people who have actually lived through the events of the past years, history really comes alive for them.

There are a number of events planned at Moorlands Lodge over the next few months, to which members of the community are warmly invited. Details can be found at
