The team at Stocks Hall Burscough Nursing Home in Lancashire welcomed members of their local community along with residents, relatives and colleagues to take part in an official opening of the newly built, purpose-made activity social club, named ‘The Stocks Tavern’.
To mark the opening, a newly purchased Interactive Activity Table was revealed. The table gives ‘In the moment’ practical and meaningful activity to all, already proving to be so valuable to those living with Dementia and their families.
Manager, Sammi Molyneux said “A wonderful day with wonderful opportunities ahead, celebrating a fantastic asset to Stocks Hall Burscough Nursing Home. The external, newly constructed social club will also have many uses – it will be an outdoor hub for people living here, families, friends and the community. We look forward to all the precious activity and friendships that this will create. This table and building is a demonstration of our continued commitment to this extremely important cause.”
Guests at the opening were entertained by a traditional bagpiper and enjoyed a buffet lunch.
Shelagh Salmon who has lived at the Home almost since it was opened, cut the ribbon to officially open the new building and Sam Potter, Operations Manager declared it open.
