New care home to open in Lincoln early next year

This story is over

A new care home will be opening in Lincoln early next year.

Work is progressing well on the new 72-bed care home with nursing being built by family business Tanglewood Care Homes on Long Leys Road in Lincoln.

The home will open its doors to new residents in February 2019, when between 50 and 60 new jobs will be created.

Tanglewood owner and founder Tracy-Ann Shelbourn said: “Our new home will be a great addition to the Long Leys Road area of Lincoln and we’re looking forward to quickly becoming part of the local community.”

In need of a name

As yet Tanglewood has not decided on a name for the home, which will become the sixth care home in the group.

The names of the other homes within the group are Hunters Creek in Boston, Cedar Falls in Spalding, Tanglewood in Horncastle, Toray Pines in Coningsby and Sandpiper in Alford.

Cynthie the Tanglewood bunny laid the first brick on the site back in May with Tracy-Ann Shelbourn, owner and founder of Tanglewood Care Homes, and Tim Blakeley, Operations Manager at LNT Construction.

The company has now launched a competition to find a name for the home, with the winning entry receiving £100 of Amazon vouchers.

Tracy-Ann added: “It’s important that we give the home a name that resonates with local people and has relevance to the area so we’re approaching residents’ associations, local schools and community groups to find a really suitable name.

“The new home is due to open in February 2019 so we’re keen to find a name as soon as possible.”

To enter, simply send an email to [email protected] with the subject line NAMING COMPETITION and explain which name you’ve chosen and why.

The deadline for entries is Friday, October 19.
