A care home development has been put forward for a national award.

In 2014 Cygnet Care began an ambitious project at The Moorings Residential home based in Earsham which was completed in March last year.

Their work has seen them put forward to the final of the Pinders Healthcare Design Award.

The nationally recognised award acknowledges the contribution of architects and owners of care homes to the well being and quality of life for those in care.

As part of their nomination they received an award and a cheque for £500 which was donated to the Nelsons Journey charity.
