A new Living Plus extra care service, opening in 2020, has now been named.

Competition winner, Nikki Firth (pictured below), a local Grimsby resident has chosen the name 'Burchester Court' for the new service currently under construction in Grimsby. 

Firth says "...both my husband and I entered the competition. I picked the name as I thought it was appropriate because of the location of the building, in between Burwell Drive and Winchester Ave."

She added: "I am a local resident having lived in the area for over 20 years...I think having the Extra Care Scheme is a brilliant idea and will give many people the chance of having a great independent life."

The prize for the competition was an Amazon Echo Plus with Phillips smart light bulbs. 

The sponsors of the competition were Morgan Ashley and Living Plus. North East Lincolnshire CCG and Grimsby-based community centre, Centre4, supported the running of the competition. 

The new service will initially provide 60 extra care apartments in Grimsby as part of a wider partnership to deliver 300 extra care apartments.
