“We have had some excellent feedback from staff at the care home who are thrilled with their new, modern surroundings.”

Ann Haigh, Trust Secretary at Oulton Abbey Care Home, said: “Wildgoose Construction has built us a superb, state-of-the-art building, which now feels like home.

“The quality of the workmanship is superb and we welcome anyone who would like to visit and see for themselves.”

Wildgoose has a successful track record of building care home facilities with successful builds in recent years at Grimsby, Lichfield, Aldridge and Solihull.
