Grand Opening at Sovereign Lodge’s Potting Shed Cafe


Thank you to everyone who attended the open day at Sovereign Lodge in Westerhope on Wednesday 29th May – and supported the home to make the event a huge success.


It was a pleasure to welcome both new and familiar faces, including families, friends, and members of the local community, to celebrate the completion of our refurbishment project and the grand opening of the new Potting Shed Café.

It was a fantastic day filled with smiles, laughter and the heartwarming music of the Salvation Army band, topped off with a fantastic performance by Carol Lee.

Our lovely resident Margaret graciously cut the ribbon to officially open the Potting Shed cafe, marking the next chapter for the care home as a leading provider of elderly and dementia care.

This safe and welcoming space now serves as a new destination within the home for elderly and dementia residents, their families and friends to enjoy together.

Designed to reflect the charms of the local area, the Potting Shed offers the perfect space to encourage social interaction – with regular events planned, and also the ability for relatives to book private use of the space for birthdays and celebrations.

In addition to the Potting Shed Café, visitors also had the opportunity to explore our new interactive corridor displays, which are each themed on the local area and designed to encourage reminiscence among our dementia residents, providing them with engaging and familiar visuals that spark memories and conversations.

These enhancements to our shared areas will contribute significantly to the well-being and happiness of our elderly and specialist dementia care residents, and it was heartening to see such positive reactions from everyone who visited throughout the day.

Thank you once again to everyone who attended and continues to support our fantastic team at Sovereign Lodge. We look forward to welcoming you again soon and continuing to provide a nurturing and enriching environment for all who live with us.
