Three new bathrooms for Thornfield

Posted: 7th March 2016

Over the last month we have installed three new bathrooms at Thornfield. One bathroom has a fantastic new electric bath which makes bathing easy and enjoyable for the residents while the other two bathrooms have been made into wet rooms. The residents all love the new facilities.

Congratulations to Chris at The Check House.
