by Bernadette House

Residents and staff were delighted to welcome two Lincoln City FC players to a celebration at the home to mark the opening of a new extension. Neil Eardley and Sam Habergham joined residents, family members and guests at Bernadette House for an afternoon of exciting activities which included sausage and beer tasting.

Visitors and residents had the opportunity to chat to the players, have their photos taken, as well as be in with a chance to win a signed football shirt.

Proprietor, Elizabeth Stephen said: “We were delighted to see so many people attend the celebration event. “It was a real testament to the hard work that has been put into improving our home over the last few months. Being part of the community is important for our residents and they love nothing more than welcoming new faces into the home.”

Bernadette House has recently been extended with three new bedrooms and a new lounge.

Many residents are avid Lincoln FC fans and often attend the matches. The signed football the players kindly donated takes pride of place in a display cabinet in the home.
