Oyster celebrates Midsomer Norton topping out

Oyster Care Homes has celebrated the topping out ceremony of its latest project, Somer Valley House, in Midsomer Norton.

The event, attended by community figures including Dan Norris, Mayor of the West of England, marked the completion of the roofing stage, paving the way for the next phases of construction. Scheduled to open in October, the 66-bed care home will feature solar panels, a battery store capable of holding two days' energy, and ground-source heating.

Oyster Care Homes CEO Tim Buckley said: “This milestone not only celebrates our construction progress but also reaffirms our dedication to the Midsomer Norton community and to setting new standards in the care home industry. The support from local leaders has been crucial in realising this vision and we’d like to thank Dan and Siobhan for joining us. We are committed to ensuring that Somer Valley House provides a nurturing, innovative home for our residents, positively impacting the area's social fabric and economy. Thank you to everyone involved, especially our partners at LNT.”

LNT site manager George Crockford expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration: “LNT is delighted to partner with Oyster Care Homes on their fourth project. This partnership showcases our shared goal of delivering exceptional care environments that prioritise residents' wellbeing and comfort.”
