New Lincoln care home with cinema and salon opens next year

Locals are being asked to name the new home

A new 72-bed care home is set to open next year in Lincoln and owners are asking locals to come up with its name.

The home is being built by Tanglewood Care Homes on Long Leys Road in Lincoln and will open its doors to new residents in February 2019.

Between 50-60 new jobs will be also be created alongside the completion of the home.

How the new care home will look when it’s completed.

As previously reported, work started in December 2017 on the home which will have a large, secure, landscaped garden as well as a cafe, cinema, tavern, hair salon and lounges.

Tanglewood Care Homes already runs five other care homes – Hunters Creek in Boston, Cedar Falls in Spalding, Tanglewood in Horncastle, Toray Pines in Coningsby and Sandpiper in Alford.

Tanglewood owner and founder Tracy-Ann Shelbourn said: “Our new home will be a great addition to the Long Leys Road area of Lincoln and we’re looking forward to quickly becoming part of the local community.

“It’s important that we give the home a name that resonates with local people and has relevance to the area so we’re approaching residents’ associations, local schools and community groups to find a really suitable name.”

The competition to find a name is open to everyone and the person or group who thinks up the winning entry will receive £100 of Amazon vouchers.

To enter, simply send an email to [email protected] with the subject line NAMING COMPETITION and explain which name you’ve chosen and why.

The deadline for entries is Friday, October 19 2018.
