RESIDENTS at Worksop’s Ashley Nursing home enjoyed a friendly chat and cup of tea as Bassetlaw Council’s chairman dropped in for a visit.
Coun Kenneth Bullivant spent the morning chatting to residents and staff as he stopped by to wish them a Happy Christmas.
His visit to the private care home was one of five across the district and he said it was extremely rewarding and enjoyable.
“I found them all very pleasant places to be in spite of all the problems with the sick and aged,” he said.
“Many of the residents are very cheerful about the care they receive at the homes, and I was absolutely intrigued by the dedication of the staff.”
