Construction begins for our new Eastbourne care home

The new luxury development, which will be built by Hallmark’s sister company, Savista Developments is being built at a total project cost of nearly £20 million across a two-acre site at Kings Drive in Eastbourne.
The site’s construction team, were recently joined by Conservative MP Caroline Ansell, Deputy Mayor, Councillor Sammy Choudhury, Hallmark’s Managing Director Ram Goyal and Chair Avnish Goyal to officially mark the start of the build.
Our care home will include the latest features including residences for couples complete with fitted kitchen and bathroom and communal areas will include the usual; café, ice cream parlour, a state-of-the-art cinema and a luxurious hairdressers and therapy room. The home will have an abundance of outdoor space on all floors including terraces, a summer garden bar, winter garden activity centre and half an acre of landscaped gardens with a unique woodland walkway for residents and visitors to enjoy.

“Residents will enjoy some of the latest features in care and design and live active and fulfilled lives.”
Local MP for Eastbourne and Willingdon, Caroline Ansell said: “I was pleased to ceremonially start the work on this much needed care home for Eastbourne and a substantial investment in our town.
“The Hallmark Group is a family-run business dedicated to providing social care, which is at the frontline of the pandemic.

Our Eastbourne development called Willingdon Park Manor is scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in late 2021.
