A SKY television film crew was in Bourne last week to get footage for a documentary about care homes.

Wood Grange Care Home in Westminster Lane, off West Street, is being included in a film which will show the positive side of residential care for the elderly.

The reason for the interest in Wood Grange was that it won a national Excellence In Care Homes award for the activities it offers residents. The award was made to activities manager Sandra Baker who was chosen from hundreds of nominees.

The documentary will include care homes throughout the UK and is scheduled to be broadcast next year.

Wood Grange specialises in looking after people with dementia and younger people with physical disabilities. The home is applying for planning permission for a single-storey extension to add five bedrooms to the 61 it already has.
