Lindsey Hall

Design Award

We are delighted to announce that Lindsey Hall has been nominated in the top 3 for the Care Home Regeneration Projects Award for the prestigous Pinder Awards for 2017. The awards ceremony will be held in London in March.

Here is a news article from the Grimsby Telegraph.

You can’t help but be impressed as you gaze up at Cleethorpes’ latest care home on Clee Road. 

Not only was the home being inspected by the Pinder Healthcare Design awards judges, but also being visited by the Mayor of North East Lincolnshire, councillor Christina McGilligan-Fell. 

This 79 bed nursing home which only opened in September last year, has transformed an old empty school building into warm ‘home from (nursing and residential) home’ and a kind of ‘home town from home town’ with its street of shops and bowling green.

And the owners are proud to announce that they have be nominated into the final three, of the Pinder Healthcare Design Awards.

In the category of best care home regeneration project, the awards recognise the best developments across the entire country and they are through against a home in Leicestershire and one on the Thames, London.

Development director, Laurence Garton said: “We are very proud and pleased to have been nominated. Delighted to be in with the very best of care homes across the UK entered into the awards finals. These are widely considered the most prestigious of all care award ceremonies.” he added.

By being nominated, the care home was awarded £500 which they in turn donated to Macmillan . Receiving the £500 cheque was Macmillan volunteer Barry Bowman, who thanked the care home. 

Laurence continued: “After hundred of entries, it’s nice to be recognised. It's another recognition on what has been a successful start to life at Lindsey Hall,” he added. “We created Lindsey Hall in conjunction with the health care professionals and within a building remit we went that one-step further and it shows,” Laurence added.

After being visited by the panel of judges, the awards night is on March 15, when they will find out if they have come first. “Macmillan is not just about the nursing side of helping people,” said Barry. “There is not only the physical side of an illness that affects people, but there is the emotional and financial issues that comes with a serious medical condition. “So I think this fantastic amount of money will go towards helping people who are perhaps facing financial worries,” he added.

Meanwhile in Lindsey Hall’s ‘street’ residents were having a right old get together over tea, coffee and biscuits. Music was playing and some residents and staff were dancing and some were playing ‘golf’ on the indoor green.

We caught up with and chatted to Christina McGilligan-Fell. “I’ve always been interested in caring, especially the elderly, even as a young schoolgirl. As I trained to be a nurse, part of my learning was a placement in caring for the elderly and I think what we have here at Lindsey Hall is just fantastic. It’s a new concept of what is required for our older generation to live in. It’s bringing the outside world inside, it’s a community together. There’s so much going on here and the residents can either take part of just sit and watch just as in ordinary life. The staff are amazing, they give the residents respect and everyone is so happy,” she added.

As the mayor mingled with everyone, we spoke with resident Elizabeth FitzGerald, who was selling raffle tickets. “I have been living here for three-months now and I love it,” she smiled. “It’s so different and homely and there is so much choice including the activities,” she added.
