The week ended with an organised BBQ and a family an friends prize drawer which brought everyone together and was opened by the local mayor of Blyth.

Holywell House’s manager Julie McMurrough said: “It was an absolutely fantastic week and we loved welcoming members of the local community into our home so that they could see what residents do and are involved with in our care.

Huge thank you to everyone who visited – it was great to meet so many new faces too.”
