Bulwell Care Home Residents Have a Blast at Breakfast with Local Firefighters

Residents from Fairway View care home in Bulwell were delighted when a team of firefighters from Stockhill Fire Station attended the home’s Blue Light Breakfast.

Fairway View’s Blue Light Breakfast event was designed by the residents and staff members to show their appreciation for key workers in the area, who were invited to the home for a hot breakfast, a cuppa and a chat.

Resident Mabel Cooper (87) said, ‘I wasn’t expecting to see eight firemen at breakfast, that was a nice surprise!

‘I thought it was a great idea to treat our emergency services to a good breakfast, where would we be without them? The firemen that came were so friendly and spent time with everyone. They’re unsung heroes!’

Benjamin Smith, a fireman from Stockhill Fire Station, commented ‘It was our pleasure to come along and spend some time with the residents of Fairway View.

We visited for a summer party a few years ago so it’s nice to come back and the breakfast has set us up for the day. It was delicious, thank you to everyone involved!’

Melanie Hayes, the Home Manager at Fairway View, added, ‘It was fantastic to see such a good turnout for our Blue Light Breakfast. The residents loved spending time with the Stockhill firefighters – one of our ladies even said, “they can come for breakfast every day!”

‘Keep checking our Facebook page for the next Blue Light Breakfast date in April.’
