regarding the plans for the enhancement of the nursing home to meet standards for the future and to provide
more comfortable accommodation for residents.

residents, the Parish Council and local residents and culminated in a Garden Party to share these plans with
The garden party, at which The High Sheriff of Somerset, John Alvis MBE and his wife Pauline were among the
guests, was hosted by Care South Chairman, Felicity Irwin DL who explained;
“It has been an excellent occasion and we are so delighted to be able to share our hopes with so many.
Beauchamp House is a home that Care South is very proud to own and we are committed to ensuring that it
continues to deliver quality care. We enjoyed meeting so many people and to share the ambience of Beauchamp
House and Gardens despite the rain.”
