Our Director of Care, Mark Lewis said: “It was a pleasure to welcome visitors to Cwm Aur. Since its opening in 2010 it has become home to many people. It was a great opportunity to welcome visitors, family and friends to meet the people who live at Cwm Aur and the staff who deliver such a fantastic service. It was also a chance to showcase our first class facilities and have a fun day.
