Dell House, which is replacing the demolished The Dell off Nelson Way in the town, began construction in June 2017.

Director of Cygnet Care, Robert Blackham, said: “The Dell has always had a good reputation, however the building was sadly no longer fit for the future and it was our wish, to build a wonderful new home that will continue to serve the elderly people of Beccles and surrounding areas.”

Sally Crawford, director at Cygnet Care, trained at The Dell and worked as a care assistant at the care home more than 30 years ago.

She said: “I have very happy memories of my time at The Dell and very proud to think a small organisation like ours is taking on this responsibility of developing a new Dell House.”

Dell House is due to open in January 2019.
