She brought some glorious sunshine with her when she arrived at the Hastings Road home to cut the ribbon, alongside general manager Brigid Sedourand.

Gloria spent several hours touring the new complex and chatting with many of the home’s residents.

The tour included a sunlit walk around the gardens to the soothing sounds of the Sussex String Quartet.
