Film duo grac­ing mem­ory gar­den

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Celebrations -

STAFF at Southview Lodge Res­i­den­tial Care Home in Hes­keth Bank have of­fi­cially opened their De­men­tia Mem­ory Walk Gar­den.

The gar­dens, with walk­ways, beau­ti­ful plants and water fea­tures, have been de­vel­oped for the ben­e­fit of res­i­dents, rel­a­tives and friends of the care home.

Di­rec­tor Paul Blane said: “We are de­lighted that the months of hard work to com­plete the vi­sion of hav­ing lux­u­ri­ous gar­dens has left us with some­thing that will bring joy to so many”.

Dur­ing the open­ing a spe­cially com­mis­sioned paint­ing was un­veiled by lo­cal artist Robert New­big­gin.

The spec­tac­u­lar piece por­tray­ing Lau­rel & Hardy is sited in a prom­i­nent place at the cen­tre of the gar­dens.

Mr Blane wanted to thank Rob for be­ing a part of both the present and fu­ture of Southview Lodge, say­ing: “The paint­ing is loved by all who view it and will be for decades to come.

“This year we have cel­e­brated 20 years of Southview Lodge and this along with the gar­dens is the per­fect way to cel­e­brate it.”
