DIGNITARIES were among 100 guests who celebrated the opening of a new adult care service for people with learning and physical disabilities.
The Meadows Short Breaks Centre, in Grove Meadow, WGC, was officially opened by trustee, former borough councillor Dr Dennis Lewis.
Dr Lewis, who first opened the original Jubilee House Care Trust care home in Grove Meadow 32 years ago, led a tree planting ceremony.
Deputy mayor Kim Langley, chairman of trustees Godfrey Holmes, chief executive Catharine Hopper and Dr Lewis all gave "inspirational" speeches.
Project co-ordinator Emer Green told the WHT: "The official opening of the Meadows Short Breaks Centre was a fantastic success.
"Our service users and their families thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon mixing with everyone who was involved in the purchase and rebuild of the centre to produce a well designed and quality furnished centre for people with learning disabilities."
