Lemington

Care home resident wishes for seaside fish and chip supper

Waverley Lodge

Alex Dawson is one of many residents at Waverley Lodge Care Home, in Lemington, to add his name to the home’s wish list.

The staff are aiming to fulfil as many wishes as possible, with the latest being Alex’s trip to the coastal town.

He traveled on the bus to Newcastle and then the Metro to Cullercoats with the home’s activities coordinator, Michelle Park.

The pair talked about the pubs that used to line Scotswood Road and stopped for a chat with soldiers holding a meet and greet in Newcastle town centre. Alex spoke of his time in the Army doing his national service.

He was then treated to a fish and chip supper on the seafront, after taking a tour of the town.
