Staff at Wood Hill Lodge care home in Sheffield have transformed their daytime seating area into an all singing and dancing café and bar.

Residents can enjoy a pint, cocktail or glass of wine and never have to ring the bell for last orders.

Terrance Farrell, 86 years old, a lifelong Sheffield resident who used to work as a butcher, has always enjoyed a drop of whiskey in his evening cup of tea and is enjoying a regular trip to the bar.

Terry said: “I love to sit in my comfy chair relaxing looking out at the views over Sheffield. Sometimes I am so relaxed I could nod off. It’s the perfect place to sit and have a pint.”

Nicola Ibbotson, Manager, Wood Hill Lodge, said: “We have all missed our pubs in the last year. We wanted to give the people we support their very

own space to have a drink, meet friends and enjoy each other’s company. It has been lovely to see people we support having a laugh with a pint and a packet of pork scratchings whilst enjoying our incredible views of Sheffield City.”
