TYNESIDE care home residents enjoyed a traditional British dinner to celebrate National Pie Week.
The celebration of one of the nation’s favourite dishes was enjoyed by everyone at Waverley Lodge Care Home, in Lemington.
They were treated to a three course, homemade dinner of vegetable soup, minced beef pie with mash and mushy peas and a dessert of trifle.
Ponteland High School students helped serve as part of their community service for the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Bingo and raffle followed for a quintessential British evening.
Nickey Malcolm, chef at Waverley Lodge Care Home, on Bewick Crescent, said: “I think it’s great to celebrate foods that are typically British and homemade pie is definitely that.”
Ann Bolam, the daughter of care home resident Irene Clarke, said: “It was lovely to have a meal with my mam. It was better than eating at a restaurant. I’m looking forward to the next event.”
Michelle Park, activities coordinator at the home, said: “It was a great atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon.
“Family members visit the home all the time but it was lovely for them to join their relatives for a meal and a game of bingo.”
