Simon Danczuk is joined by staff, residents and relatives as he cuts the ribbon to declare Riverside Nursing Home officially re-open
The owners of a flood hit care home have thanked Rochdale Council and MP Simon Danczuk for helping get the business back on its feet.
Mr Danczuk did the honours at the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the reopening of Riverside Nursing Home in Littleborough, which had been closed since last year’s major flooding.
Residents were evacuated when the flooding hit and the building was left without electricity or gas. Overall, the damage cost the business an estimated £150,000 in repairs and lost income.
Business Manager Natasha Khan said: “It was an awful start to the year but we are turning it around and we are so pleased to be back open again.
“I’m really grateful that our local MP has supported us as well as the council.”
Mr Danczuk said: “This is a fantastic nursing home and I know I speak for staff, residents and relatives when I say I’m delighted to see it back up and running.”
