During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

Fourteen people live at Keswick House. When we arrived at 8.30 am four people were up having breakfast others arrived for breakfast until mid morning. Some people told us that they go to bed early, some said they liked to rise later unless they were going out somewhere in the morning.

Although the building comprises two semi houses with links for movement between the buildings, most people gather in one of the main kitchen/dining areas. They were keen to tell us what their plans for the day were.

We were told about a new "Friday Feast" at a church centre nearby, they showed us the menu that included breakfast and scampi and chips. Some said they were going later in the morning when it opened clearly looking forward to the experience.

One person told us about a Medieval Feast they were going to the following week at the famous Bear Inn at Hodnet. They had been before, had asked to go again and booked for several people. They told us about the food and the entertainment that included jousting and dancing.

People were keen to tell us about the many social events and activities they enjoyed in the community. Some recounted holidays they had, one person telling us they had been to France, Tunisia and Tenerife several times.
