Residents of Washington Lodge go back to the 1940s

Residents of Washington Lodge Nursing Home in the North East of England took part in a 1940s Wartime Weekend event in nearby Springwell village.

They got to reminisce about the vehicles, food, music and fashion of the era as well as remember the hardships of the war.

Staff hope to organise more such days out, based on what residents say they would like to do, and are now looking into transport options for future trips. Watch this space for more news of their travels soon!
