A CARE centre boasting modern facilities - including a mini cinema and pamper and treatment room - was opened in Wisbech this week.

Glennfield House, in Money Bank, was bought by Excelcare from Cambridgeshire County Council and closed last summer for a complete rebuild.

Wisbech Mayor, Councillor Jonathan Farmer officially opened Glennfield Care Centre at a ceremony on Tuesday.

The centre caters for people over the age of 65 and can be used by those needing residential or nursing care.

Cllr Farmer said: "This place really has top of the range facilities and this is fantastic news for the people of Wisbech."

During the ceremony Les Chaplin, executive director of Exelcare, handed over a cheque to Colonel Buckenham, from the Wisbech branch of the Royal British Legion.

Volunteers are needed to take part in various activities with residents and anyone interested should contact Becky Cooper on 01945 581141.

Anyone wishing to find out more information about the centre should contact Sue Miller or Sarah Bull on 01945 581141.
