Film duo gracing memory garden
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.”
