Elderly Vale residents will continue to receive social day care services in Steeple Claydon and Wing as a new trading company steps in.

Buckinghamshire Care are taking over in April to maintain services in both Steeple Claydon and Wing after Age UK announced it was unable to continue the service at Steeple Claydon.

The agreement brings to an end a period of uncertainty as to whether the facilities could continue to provide care.

Cabinet member for health and wellbeing Patricia Birchley said: “I’m pleased that Buckinghamshire Care has agreed to continue this valuable service which supports people with dementia and provides respite for carers.”

Councillor for Steeple Claydon Angela Macpherson said: “It’s great news for our community that we’ve been able to ensure the future of these important local services.”
