Pupils’ mural unveiled by Mayor at The Beeches Care Home


Sep 24, 2016

THE MAYOR of Stockton-on- Tees will officially unveil a garden mural created by school pupils for elderly residents.

Mayor Councillor Ken Dixon will be the guest of honour at the unveiling ceremony at The Beeches Care Home, Green Lane, Newtown.

The mural of colourful birds, flowers and butterflies was created by pupils from Stockton Riverside College to brighten the garden for elderly residents living at the home.

Liz Jones, Customer Relations Officer for Hill Care Group, which manages The Beeches, said: “The mural brightens a large wall that our residents look onto from the lounge and dining areas.

“We can’t thank the students enough for their hard work. We hope to see as many attending the official unveiling as possible. And we’d like to thank Mayor Councillor Dixon for coming to the ceremony.”

The unveiling ceremony starts at 2pm on Wednesday, September 21. Anyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments provided.
