Lindisfarne Court celebrates 25 years of opening


The service is home to thirteen people and is formed by three interlinking bungalows, each one decorated in a particular style to play a part in the Cinderella story.  The planning of the event has taken months with all taking very active parts in making the final event something very special.  Family, friends, colleagues and people from the charity’s services further afield came together on the afternoon of Friday 7 July when, after days of rain, the sun shone.

Barry said, ‘he was very proud and happy people had come to celebrate’.  He also added living at Lindisfarne was ‘very good’.

“People who live here enjoy a real home environment; they are encouraged to take a lead in the running of their home and to make choices and decisions to lead the lives they choose. We’re very proud to be celebrating 25 years and look forward to the next 25.  We’ve also spent time remembering people who have been part of the service but are no longer with us – they too are a special part of its history.”  Lesley Robinson, Head of Pastoral Care
