Cadley Hill View care home in Swadlincote banished the winter blues by transforming their vintage tearoom into a seaside haven for their residents.
Staff members surprised the residents wearing old fashioned long swimwear as they stepped through the doors onto the Cadley Hill View promenade.
Complete with beach umbrellas and a seascape backdrop, the residents had a blast as they were served classic fish and chips, cockles, and crab sticks, finished off with ice cream.
88-year-old resident, Jackie Lenton, said, ‘I really enjoyed the food, especially the fish and chips served in the baskets you get at the seaside. It was very nice to sample the cockles and crab sticks.’
Stacie Weaver, the Home Manager at Cadley Hill View, added, ‘We always do our best to create fun and exciting memories with our residents, who make Cadley Hill View the incredible home it is.
‘Our beach-themed pop-up restaurant was a hit – just what everyone needed in the recent cold weather!’
