On Friday the 27th July residents, families and friends gathered at Grace Care Centre to enjoy the homes Fish and Chips Lunch Club, taking place on the last Friday of the month.

Following the lunch, guests were all treated to a visit from some lovely local dogs. The club saw a fantastic turn out with 16 members joining on the day. All the guests were treated to a freshly cooked battered fish and chips which was appreciated by all, judging by the empty plates left over!

Alongside the lunch, it was a lovely afternoon seeing the residents really engage with dogs. There were smiles across lots of faces and the interaction between the residents and the animals is amazing. Pets bring great benefits such as companionship, unconditional love, and fun, just their very presence can help reduce stress, anxiety, agitation, depression and loneliness.

 We very much look forward to the next visit! Everyone is welcome to join; the next meet is on the 31st of August at 12:30pm.
