STAFF at a York care home have helped residents mark Valentine’s Day by setting up their very own “pub”.

The bar was installed at South Park Care Home in Gale Lane, in Acomb, to give people living there the feel of popping down to the local as they spent time with their husbands and wives on the most romantic day of the year.

While no alcohol was sold from the bar, due to a licence being required, residents were still able to raise a glass as drinks were brought in by their families.

A spokeswoman for the home said four couples gathered in the home’s communal area for the lunchtime treat.

She said: “We wanted to do something special for them on Valentine’s Day.”
