Residents at a north Northumberland care home are enjoying the last days of summer thanks to a new facility.
The summerhouse was donated to The Old Vicarage in Wooler by not-for-profit housing provider Four Housing.
The summerhouse was previously used by tenants in Horsdonside, the sheltered housing complex.
Janet Cresswell, care home manager, said: “The summerhouse is a great addition to the garden. We have recently added new fencing to make the garden a safer area for residents and the summerhouse is the finishing touch, which I’m sure many of our residents will enjoy.”
Residents celebrated the arrival of the summerhouse with a ceremony to mark its opening. The ribbon was cut by resident Charles Tully, who said: “The summerhouse looks like it has been in our garden for a long time as it fits in so well with the house and grounds.
“It is a nice change to be able to sit outside in pleasant surroundings and have the shelter of the summerhouse.
“On behalf of all of the residents, I would like to thank Four Housing for its kind donation.”
Bernie Hogg, operations manager at Four Housing, said: “We wanted to make sure that older people in Wooler would continue to benefit from the summerhouse and it is great to see that it is being put to good use.”
