Whitnash Mayor enjoys the new snug

In celebration of Dementia Awareness Week, The Lawns Care home in Whitnash opened it’s new ‘snug’ with the help of the Mayor of Whitnash, Rob Margrave.

Manager of The Lawns, Helena Hitchcox, run by Runwood homes, decided to turn one of it’s new rooms into a snug to encourage residents to get together in the evenings for a quiet drink and a natter, something that many people will do in their free time, proving that these fun times can continue even when life changes direction.

The new snug has a bar area, dart board and games tables and is open to residents and their family and friends to use.

The Mayor said “It’s great that residents will be able to come along and enjoy the new room which I’m sure will provoke many memories for those with or without Dementia”
