Castor Lodge is County Court’s 33rd care home - the firm, based in Peterborough, already operates Rose Lodge in Market Deeping and Tallington Lodge in Tallington. Castor Lodge is the site of the former Woodlands Sports Centre in Splash Lane.

The home will provide new jobs and Mr Vara said he is pleased that this will help the local economy.

He added:“I was impressed with the facilities available, which cater for accommodation as well as residential and social needs.
