Residents, relatives and friends joined Black Swan’s founding directors at Nightingale Lodge in Hunstanton, West Norfolk for an afternoon tea party to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the purchase of the home.

Thirty years ago, three friends and business colleagues fulfilled a dream. On Saturday 22nd June 1994, Black Swan Care Group purchased its first care home – Nightingale Lodge on Austin Street in Hunstanton, West Norfolk, just a few miles from the Royal Estate in Sandringham.

History of the Group

Black Swan Care Group itself was founded in 1991. The company started as a Business Consultancy for the care sector, primarily instructed to give advice to UK Banks. The first care home purchase was made on 22nd June 1994. In the intervening years, we have acquired 21 more care homes across East Anglia. Most recently the Group purchased Thomas Tawell House in Norwich and Beccles care home in North Suffolk.

The sun shone and residents, relatives and staff gathered at the home to celebrate the anniversary.

Founding director Brett Burton: “I’m so proud to be here celebrating our first care home purchase back in 1994. Nightingale House obviously has a significant part in our history, and to see how we’ve grown to become the Group of homes that we are across the East of England is quite humbling. Every one of our homes sits at the heart of its local community, with a great reputation, with dedicated, well-trained staff, providing the best, high-quality care service. Here’s to the next 30 years!”
