New tenants have moved in to a renovated old people’s home in Coggeshall.

Residents, staff and local councillors celebrated the re-opening of Beaumont House, Paycocke Way, with an afternoon tea and a sing-song.

The original bedsits have been transformed into self-contained flats with their own bathroom facilities and wheelchair-friendly kitchens with adjustable units.

The new facilities also include a communal lounge, conservatory, landscaped garden and BBQ area.
