A 50-bed care home has been officially opened in Hyndburn by TV actor John Middleton and likened to a ‘seven-star hotel’. The former Emmerdale star attended Pendle Brook Care Home in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, last Thursday and was joined by Hyndburn Mayor June Harrison, Mayoress Joyce Plummer and other dignitaries. Family-run operator Rochcare said the ‘architectural masterpiece’ on Haworth Street will be their ‘flagship’ care facility, create at least 50 jobs, and also offer support to people living with dementia and other needs. Pendle Brook Care Home, situated next to the Civic Arts Centre and Theatre, will also include residential areas, hairdressers and a public cafe.
