Back Down to the Local

For many, it has been an unbeerable year not being able to visit the pub to taste the sweet nectar of a crisp cold pint or indulge in some tasty pub grub. With the national lockdown restrictions easing, what better way to celebrate than a visit to your local watering hole? Residents of Abbey Court Care Home and Acer Court Care Home were living it larger than life as they finally returned to their favourite pubs.

Abbey Court visited The Winding Wheel, which is just a short walk from the home to tuck into some delicious fish and chips, which of course was washed down with a pint or two. Talking of being back in his local tavern, resident Roger mentioned, “It is really nice to get out and partake in such normal activities again. I love visiting our local and enjoyed a proper pub lunch, especially the apple pie and custard!” The residents enjoyed the trip so much that they now plan to visit the pub for a spot of lunch regularly and thoroughly look forward to inviting their loved ones to tag along.

Avery care homes are following all Government and Public Health England guidelines. Trips out and visits to our homes are subject to localised cases and subsequent restrictions.
