Whitby care home welcomes mayor to topping out ceremony

The Mayfield Care Home, Whitby, Yorkshire, has welcomed local luminaries to its topping out ceremony.

Scheduled to open its doors in March, the 66-bed luxury home will provide residential and dementia care and create 65 jobs. It is being developed by LNT Care Developments and will be operated by family-run Cromwell Care. The home boasts a state-of-the-art cinema, a hair and beauty salon, and a café. The design of the home incorporates solar panels and ground source heat pumps. 

At the ceremony, in which the final roof tile was laid, the LNT team were joined by the Town Mayor of Whitby, Cllr Linda Wild, Scarborough Borough Council’s councillor for Mayfield, Cllr John Nock, Cromwell Care’s CEO, Tobyn Dickinson, and The Mayfield Care Home’s general manager, Adam Kane.

Councillor Wild said: “As the Mayor of Whitby, the community is at the heart of everything I do, and The Mayfield Care Home will undoubtedly become a significant part our local community. It was an honour to visit the home and meet the team. We witnessed a hugely impressive building which will bring important jobs to Whitby, as well as much-needed accommodation for elderly people in Whitby and the surrounding area. We are looking forward to working with them in the coming months and years. The Mayfield Care Home team is passionate about the meaning of quality of life and I could see that in the team’s experience and focus, and the design and layout of the building.”

Tobyn Dickinson added: “I’d like to thank The Mayor of Whitby and Councillor Nock for joining us for our topping out ceremony – it was an absolute pleasure to welcome them and give them a tour of our home. The Mayfield Care Home is coming together well and I’m sure our future residents will love everything we have to offer. The home will become a key part of the local community. There is a significant shortage of care home beds in Whitby, and we look forward to helping improve this situation.”
