RESIDENTS of Heron House, March, can look forward to a brighter future following completion of major improvements.

The residential home in The Avenue has also benefited from a sponsored cycle ride from five care staff from the dementia unit, who took part in a 50-mile cycle ride to Peterborough and back.
