A taste of the coast
An elderly care home resident has fulfilled his wish for a trip to the coast for a fish and chips supper.
Alex Dawson, a resident at Waverley Lodge Care Home in Lemington, Newcastle, was joined by the home’s activities co-ordinator Michelle Park on a trip to Cullercoats.
The home is ensuring residents’ wishes are fulfilled, and Alex requested a fish and chip supper on the seafront and a visit around the village.
He said: “I hadn’t been on a day out to the seaside for years. I wished to have proper fish and chips by the sea like when I was a lad.
“I had the best day out ever. I really appreciate Michelle taking me out for the day.”
Michelle added: “You know it’s a good day when you go to the seaside with a gentleman as lovely as Alex for your job. We both had a brilliant day.”
