Stonedale Lodge Residents Enjoy Pie Week Treat Gifted By Local Shop

Local supermarket gifts pies

National Pie Week was one to remember for the Residents of Stonedale Lodge this year, thanks to a kind donation from supermarket Jack’s.

The big-hearted store donated 32 delicious steak pies, chips, peas and gravy so Residents could enjoy an in-house celebration.

As the kitchen team got to work to prepare a feast for everyone to enjoy, Senior Activities Co-ordinator Karen Dransfield hit upon another idea to make the event memorable.

She decided to combine a special pie and pint afternoon with World Book Day celebrations too, so she staged a one-woman performance of scenes from Pinocchio.

With great food and fun entertainment, Karen said the Residents thoroughly enjoyed the festivities.

Karen said: “It was so kind of Jack’s to donate a pie week feast, we wanted to make it a memorable afternoon.

“Each Resident got to enjoy pie tasters and a pint, which went down a storm.

“The Pinocchio sketches were a hoot to play, the Residents love it when they can get involved with a bit of fun. All in all, it was a happy, fun-filled afternoon, and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
