“Lord Cecil Parkinson officially opened it in October as he was born and bred in Carnforth in the terrace houses opposite Hillcroft.”
Once everything was up and running it wasn’t long before they set their sights on another project and in 1993 the Hillcroft Nursing Home in Caton was opened.
Shoot forward 25 years and they now proudly own six – all within the local community.
Mr Ayrton added: “I only have one regret and that is I wish I was 56 and not 76 as time for me is running out but I am still as enthusiastic that Hillcroft remain number one in the area and maintain its high standards.
“It’s an establishment that all three of us are very proud of.”
