A Sanctuary Care home in Worcester has officially opened its garden cafe and will be welcoming local people to pop in for a cuppa and cake.
The team at Cranham Residential Care Home have revamped a room overlooking the Warndon home’s gardens, into a small cafe.
Resident Nora Harris, 99, said: “The room is absolutely lovely and they’ve decorated it very nicely. I think it’s such a good idea to have a cafe at the home.”
Following the official opening by Worcester City Councillor for Warndon, Jo Hodges, the cafe will be open on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, from 2pm to 4pm.
On opening the cafe, Councillor Hodges said: “I’m really honoured that the team at Cranham asked me here to open their cafe. It’s a truly lovely, welcoming area where residents and local people can meet together.”
Home manager Cindy Hawkins added: “We are part of a thriving close knit community here and are really looking forward to becoming a hub where people from can pop in for a chat over a cuppa and cake.”
The event has been funded by the MoneyBox Fund at Sanctuary Group, Sanctuary Care’s parent company. This is just one of the projects across England to benefit from the fund, which offers funding for community activities taking place in Sanctuary owned homes and schemes.
