Work has begun on the construction of an 80-bed care home which will create 140 jobs locally. The new luxury development, which will be built by Savista Developments (Hallmark’s sister company) is being built at a cost of nearly £20 million across a two-acre site at Kings Drive in Eastbourne.
Conservative MP, Caroline Ansell said: “I was pleased to ceremonially start the work on this much needed care home for Eastbourne. The Hallmark Group is a family-run business dedicated to providing social care, which is at the frontline of the pandemic.”
The Eastbourne development is to be called Willingdon Park Manor, scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in late 2021. The new development will be the Essex-based care group’s 22nd care home.
