    History (Pinched from AuntieKnickers report due to very little info on the internet)

    Care Shangton was a village complex which has provided homes and activities for people with Learning Disabilities and Moderate Mental Health Conditions for more than 35 years. It focused on independence by providing occupations in Catering and Horticulture.

    The company also owned a Tea Room and market stall in Market Harborough where they would sell plants, bouquets of flowers, cakes and scones which had been made by residents to raise money for holidays and day trips.

    The Village provided a service to 53 people with more on a waiting list, it was made up of several houses specially designed for 2-4 people and a more traditional 14 bed unit filled with corridors. It was announced in 2007 that CARE Shangton was to close, luckily it was saved and continued to provide a service until a further announcement in 2013. With movement of people into new accommodation the closure wasn't complete until October 2015.

    Very Interesting.

    Care also had village next door to Northumbria Police HQ in Ponteland, Northumberland, but sold it to a housing developer about 4 years ago, their are now 46 houses on the site. The money they got from it, was used to buy single houses in the local vicinity to house the residents.

    It opened in 1982/83, containing 4 resident houses, workshops and communal kitchen/restaurant. It also had gardens and greenhouses. Towards the end they opened a commercial café and revamped the gardens.
