A care home in Banbury has welcomed a new home manager to its team.
Highmarket House, on North Bar Place, has appointed Julia Joy, who will lead the team in running the purpose-built, luxury care home.
Julia started working in the care sector over 20 years ago and has previously worked for Care UK as a home manager at Priors House, in Leamington Spa.

“I am delighted to be re-joining Care UK and taking the reins at Highmarket House. More than anything, I am looking forward to putting smiles on the residents’ faces, knowing they are having a wonderful time at a happy home.”
