FISH and chips is not traditional Christmas cuisine but that didn’t stop Teesside care home residents.
Crackers and paper hats accompanied a slap-up fish lunch at Stockton-on-Tees chippy Barnacles.
Their fish and chips was followed by ice cream and all accompanied by pots of tea.
Amy Trattles, activities coordinator at The Beeches, on Green Lane, said: “The residents were excited to go for a fish lunch. They really enjoyed talking to the residents from Mandale House too.”
Sarah Robinson, activities coordinator for Mandale House, on Acklam Road, Thornaby, said: “Who doesn’t like fish and chips on a winter’s day?
“It was lovely to see the residents making friends with those from The Beeches.”
