Care home unveils £700k refurbishment

A care home in Cardiff has unveiled a £700,000 refurbishment with a little help from the mayor and Wales rugby star Rhys Webb.

Shire Hall, which is run by Hallmark Care Homes, has been given a complete makeover and staff and the home's 90 residents celebrated the new look with a grand launch event with mayor Coun Monica Walsh, pictured third from left, as well as injured Wales scrum half Webb, pictured on the left.

As part of the makeover, the home now boasts an old-fashioned pub, a gentleman’s barbers, a hair salon, café, activities room, garden lounge, farmhouse kitchen, cinema and sensory lounge.

Karen Grapes, general manager at Shire Hall, said: “I was so pleased to be able to host such a successful relaunch event for Shire Hall. We were proud to welcome the mayor and we were also delighted that Welsh rugby star Rhys Webb was able to attend and enjoy the day with us and we would like to thank Britain’s Got Talent finalist Melanie Gilpin for providing fantastic entertainment.  

“We look forward to ensuring Shire Hall continues to offer outstanding relationship-centred care to all of our residents.”
