Scunthorpe care home opens pub for residents

A Scunthorpe care home has opened a pub for its residents. Phoenix Park Care Village, on Phoenix Avenue, Scunthorpe has opened up a pub for its residents and their families to enjoy, amongst a number of other projects they are undertaking for the benefits of those they care for. The pub has fittingly been called The Phoenix and is complete with its own bar, beer pumps and authentic traditional pub decoration. Deputy manager Alana Rees said the pub gives the residents the opportunity to “go out” and socialise with their fellow residents and family members. There is also an outdoor “beer garden” area for residents to enjoy and various games for them to get involved with.
