Care home turns room into a 1960s-style pub
A care home has decided to turn one of its rooms into a 1960s-style pub at the request of the residents.
Stoke House care home in Stoke Lane, Gedling, Nottinghamshire, decided to transform a room into a pub, which they have called The Carers' Arms.
Staff decided to make the change after some of the residents said they missed going to the pub and having a game of darts.
Louise Nichol, 39, the activities coordinator who decided to turn the room into a pub said:
The staff decorated the room inside the care home through donations from the local community and by up-cycling items that were going to be thrown away.
The pub stocks a range of beers and alcoholic drinks as well as tea, coffee and crisps free of charge.
It also plays sport on a television screen and provides residents with an alternative place to eat.
Esmine Sinns, 82, who has been a resident of the care home for one year, has become the pub's new landlady since it opened.She said:
