A PUB trip for pizza was enjoyed by north east care home residents celebrating National Pizza Day.
The Coach and Horses, in Birtley, served residents and staff from Pelton Grange Care Home, on Front Street, Pelton, for the occasion.
They were treated to their favourite toppings, including mozzarella, chicken and pepperoni, before taking several pizzas back to the home for those not at the pub.
The pub chef, Keith Flood, demonstrated pizza making to the residents at last year’s National Pizza Day. He said: “It was very nice to meet everyone again.”
Pelton Grange Care Home resident Mary Lines said: “It reminded me of going out to eat with my husband, depending on how our shift patterns worked out.
“I thought the pizza was great and I did like my whisky and soda.”
Fellow resident Brenda Clifford said: “I enjoyed being out and the pizza smelled great.”
Among those treated to pizza was work experience learner Lewis Sale-Thorn, who is working with the home’s maintenance man Dave Purdy.
Chris Hogan-Hind, home manager at Pelton Grange Care Home, said: “The pizza was our way of saying thank you to Lewis for helping out at the home.
“Everyone enjoyed their pizza day. They were absolutely delicious. A big thank you goes to The Coach and Horses and chef Keith Flood for welcoming us.
“Everyone is looking forward to next year’s National Pizza Day already.”
