Simon Danczuk cuts the ribbon to declare flood hit care home reopen‏

IMG_2469.JPGTHE 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.

Riverside’s management team are now looking to fill vacancies at the 22 bed home and are also considering a plan to expand.

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.

“Rochdale Council did an excellent job supporting homeowners and businesses with emergency payments and the local community really came together to help those in need.

“My office is still working to make sure insurance companies give business owners the support they need.”
