There is a new pub in Whitchurch, but with a very select clientele after opening in a care home.

Edgeley House, in Edgeley Road, has spent the last few months turning a room in the home into a pub for residents.

Kizzy Ankers, who has been home manager at Edgeley House for more than a year, said the pub is the latest development in a long-term plan to give residents a home to be proud of.

"We did the dementia cafe last year and residents, and then the residents asked they wanted to do the pub," she said.

"We've been working on that and it's about bring a change of scenery for them, and introduces a bit of normality into their lives.

"For our dementia and Alzheimer's patients, being in a pub like this is goo because it brings back good memories, which is really good.

"They thought this was right for them.

"One patient, Terry Schofield, was the drive behind the pub and the other residents agreed. He asked for a 'fussball' table and then he put it together.

"We're hoping that in the summer we will put some benches outside.

"The residents have been a crucial part of the whole process; it's their home and we want them to be as comfortable as possible."

The cutting of the ribbon honour was given to Terry, who officially opened the pub room with Kizzy.

Residents will be able to enjoy drinks from under the bar, a game of darts or 'fussball', as well as picking music from a modern-style jukebox.
