THE construction team at J Tomlinson has begun working on a £6.5m project to build a new care home near Oxford.

The 70-bedroom scheme on Cumnor Hill is the second care home built for Hamberley by J Tomlinson.

This latest project will provide nursing care for elderly, frail and dementia residents in a three-storey facility at Chawley Park, Cumnor Hill, due for completion early in 2019.

Martin Gallagher, managing director (construction) for Nottingham-based J Tomlinson, said: “We are delighted that J Tomlinson has now been appointed to deliver a second scheme for Hamberley Development, a company that specialises in creating high quality care homes.”
