A NEW day care centre for elderly people has been launched in Rotherham.
Melton Court Day Care Centre in Maltby is to provide day care and meals-on-wheels to people living in the local community.
The former pub has been opened by Yorkshire businessman Imran Zahir after a renovation thanks to funding from Barclays.
Five staff are employed at the centre.
Mr Zahir, whose other ventures include Care Maltby Ltd in Rotherham, said: “I hope the new centre will provide respite for the elderly in the local community.
“It’s also great we’ve renovated an unused property.”
