A ground-breaking ceremony was held to mark work starting on a new £8 million community care centre in Heanor.

The ceremony at what will become the Florence Shipley Community Care Centre on Thursday was attended by Florence’s daughter Margaret Marsh, 94, and granddaughters Anne Jackson and Helen Moore. The original Florence Shipley residential care home had been on the Market Place site since 1967. Mrs Marsh said: “It has always been very special to our family that my mother was honoured by having the care home named after her.”
