Television and radio presenter Gloria Hunniford will officially open a new care home next Saturday (April 30).

Gloria, known for appearances on The One Show and This Morning, as well as a host of other programmes, will arrive at Southlands Place care home, in Hastings Road, at 11am with a ribbon cutting at midday.

Once the ribbon is cut the presenter is set to take a tour of the 72-bedroom home and speak to residents, their relatives, the care team and visiting members of the public.

Home manager Brigid Sedour said: “We are very much looking forward to showing Gloria Hunniford what a modern, purpose-built home can offer to residents.

“We have been open just a few weeks and are already making friends with neighbours and local groups, becoming part of the Bexhill community.”

Guests will be invited to enjoy music from the Sussex String Quartet during lunch, which will be prepared by the home’s chefs.

They will also be able to take advantage of complimentary nail and hair treatments in the salon.

The home is the newest development by the Caring Homes Group.

It has a cinema, café, therapy room and two hairdressing salons.
