STAFF at a Widnes care home have created a rockery in memory of one of their residents. 

The rockery at Warrington Road Care Home is a moving tribute to Josie Meaney, who lived there and recently passed away.  

The team at Warrington Road, a residential home for adults with complex care needs, have been transforming the garden and adding colour to the patio space.

To create the rockery, they painted pebbles in memory of Josie and added solar lights for darker evenings. 

Mandy Williams-Vance, team leader at Warrington Road, said: “We’re delighted with how lovely the garden looks.

“It’s important to us that the individuals we support are fully involved with our decisions, and when they suggested creating a memorial to Josie, I thought it was a brilliant idea. 

“She was a lovely lady, and we were great friends; it is really nice to have somewhere we can go in the garden to remember her.”
