Bright idea by carers

Who needs to go to Blackpool for illuminations? Not residents in Choppington, that's for sure.

The Wansbeck Care Home Illuminations.

For staff at Wansbeck Care Home have brought the bright lights to them.

The idea came about after a number of residents of the home said they would normally go to Blackpool to see the lights.

As they were unable to get there this year, the staff decided to decorate the home in the same style.

There was a switching-on ceremony on October 11 – the same day as the Blackpool event.

And there was even a version of the Blackpool Tower, fish and chips, and, of course, sticks of rock.
