CARE home residents received a special invitation to a Skelmersdale café that specialises in turning supermarket surplus food into delicious meals.  

Residents and staff at Aaron Crest Care Home, on Tanhouse Road, were given the VIP treatment at the nearby Junk Food Café.

Café coordinator David Scott reserved a table and served a home cooked, three-course banquet after spotting several of the home’s residents walking by.

They pass the Tanhouse Community Centre, where the café opens every Wednesday, on their weekly walk to the newsagents.

As the NHS turns 70, we take a look at a round-up of news, views and events which are taking place across the country to celebrate the world’s greatest health service. Our nation became the envy of the world when, on 5 July 1948, the NHS was launched by Health Secretary Aneurin “Nye” Bevan, at Park Hospital in Manchester (now Trafford General Hospital). This was the first time that hospitals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, opticians and dentists had been brought together under one umbrella to provide services for free at the point of delivery.
