Nursing home at Grange to celebrate its centenary

A GRANGE nursing home is to celebrate its centenary with a day of retro fun.

Cartmel Grange was set up to provide care for soldiers who were affiliated members of the Working Men’s Club and Institute Union.

It then became known as the ‘miners home’ where injured members of the clubs could recuperate.

Since being bought by Brancaster Care Ltd nine years ago it has undergone a transformation to restore original features.

The home will mark its centenary on June 28 when Queen’s Guide to the Sands Cedric Robinson MBE will open a day of commemorations and unveil a plaque.

The day will involve staff dressing in WWI outfits, clog dancing, music by local brass band The Old Contemptibles and local trade stands.
