 Local MP visits Dale Park care home for open day

RESIDENTS and relatives at HC-One's Dale Park Care Home in Meols Cop, Southport were joined by local MP John Pugh to celebrate the 4th annual:- 'Care Home Open Day.'

John Pugh MP joined in with the fun activities taking place at Dale Park Care Home, as it opened its doors to the local community for the international open day, complementing the home on the lively atmosphere and great music.

Dale Park Care Home hosted a range of exciting activities in line with this year's theme of:- 'Right Royal Blooming Great Tea Party', including:- music, provided by Jon Frankland, a true rock and roller playing in the resident band at the Star Club in Hamburg in the 60's, he was good friends with the Beatles and has played with Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and the Everley brothers. Jon's wife Joan lives at Dale Park and Jon loves singing for Joan and all the Residents and staff.

A local charity shop (Debra charity) set up in the garden so Residents could shop and browse. A few ladies bought handbags and games. We also had Ian Mitchell a Dementia Support Worker from the Alzheimer's society come to talk to relatives and residents. After music from Jon we all enjoyed a wonderful Royal buffet including canopies, sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and French fancy cakes, with an endless supply of tea, wine, beer and lemonade.

The garden was decorated with bunting that residents had helped to make and there was a tombola and plant/herb sale (plants grown from seed by Residents as part of a fortnightly horticulture group)

It was a day filled with fun and excitement, and a great opportunity for Residents, their loved ones, and members of the local community to get together and get creative, whilst recognising the important work that care teams do, day in day out, to care for vulnerable members of our society. As part of the celebrations HC-One homes across the country were also raising money for HC-One's charity partner Marie Curie. Dale Park Care Home raised £50 for the charity.

Care Home Open Day is an international initiative aimed at all care homes in the UK and beyond, both big and small, private providers and those run by local authorities. Thousands of care homes take part each year, holding special activities that create strong and meaningful link across the generations, between Residents and their local communities.

HC-One Dale Park Care Home Manager, Carla Middleton, said:- "Everyone had a wonderful day. We were delighted that MP John Pugh was able to visit the home, meet with Residents and their families and enjoy the lively entertainment and activities during the day."

HC-One Managing Director, Glen Mason, said:- "It is wonderful to see so many Residents, staff and their families enjoying themselves at events like this and welcoming the community into our care homes to see the kind care we provide to Residents."

Big Co-Op clean to "sweep" into Southport

THE Big Co-op Clean is set to "sweep" into Southport, on Thursday, 30 June 2016, as part of a community campaign to tackle litter and improve the local environment together. Forming part of a national campaign, colleagues from:- The Co-op, the Southport Co-op Local Forum and Salvation Army, have joined forces and are encouraging the community to help to make a difference locally by arriving at the Salvation Army centre on Shakespeare Street, at 9:30am and taking part. The Southport litter pick is taking place during Co-operative Fortnight, which this year runs until 2 July 2016 to highlight the benefits of co-operation.

Frank Hanley, Member Pioneer at the Co-op Local Forum in Southport, said:- "As a community retailer the Co-op is committed to making a positive difference to local life. The Big Co-op Clean is a chance for members, customers, local organisations and groups and, the community as a whole to come together to improve the local environment for the benefit of everyone; and the more people that join in, the bigger the difference we can make. The Big Co-op Clean is also a way of demonstrating how co-ops are different to other types of business. Because they are owned by their members local issues and concerns are more of a priority; that's just one of the reasons why the Southport community is co-operating to tackle local litter together."
