Mantles Court Open Day

4 October 2021

On Wednesday 29th September the Mayor of Biggleswade Councillor Madeline Russell attended an open day at Mantles Court, our new care home for older people in Biggleswade.

The new home is situated on London Road, just opposite the Yorkshire Grey public house, and takes its name from the old Mantles Garage site on which it was built. Mantles Court will provide first class accommodation for older people and represents the latest in care home design.

The home features the Bloom Café, a Cinema, Hair and Beauty Salon and a Spa as well as a number of lounges, dining rooms and kitchen areas all of which will provide residents with a warm and welcoming environment. Glazed balconies overlook the home’s extensive landscaped gardens onto which a number of the ground floor bedrooms also open.

The open day was also attended by local Councillors, senior representatives from Central Bedfordshire Council as well as John Mantle, whose family previously owned the Mantles Garage. The guests were invited to take a tour of the home and then meet the new team from Mantles Court for coffee and cupcakes in the café.

Our CEO Maria Ball said “We were absolutely delighted to be able to show our guests around our wonderful new home today, and would like to extend our sincere thanks for such a warm welcome to Biggleswade. As a not for profit Community Benefit Society, we are really looking forward to becoming an active part of the local community.”
