Golden age of Hollywood comes to new Solihull care home


Gracewell of Knowle Gate - L-R Mayor of Solihull, Founding Resident Peggy Walker and Gracewell Team Member Bashir JamalOver one hundred VIP guests joined the Worshipful Mayor of Solihull to celebrate the opening of the new Gracewell of Knowle Gate care home on Warwick Road.

Guests included senior members of the Bourneville Village Trust, healthcare professionals, lawyers and founding residents of the home – all of whom were treated to a wonderful afternoon of entertainment and an opulent high tea -and tours of the new facility.

The Knowle male voice choir captivated the crowd with a stunning performance in the courtyard, followed by some theatrical prose and comical poetry from Jenny Noonan of Knowle Library.

The newly appointed Solihull Mayor, Cllr Michael Robinson, then cut the ribbon to officially open the home, along with founding resident of Knowle Gate Peggy Walker.

The first residents of the new care home moved in this week, with the community able to cater for 60 in total. They are the first to enjoy a facility which combines the services of a high quality care home with the design and feel of a boutique hotel.
