Residents at HC-One’s Leeming Garth care home in Leeming Bar, Northallerton enjoyed a tasty treat when staff from Vale of Mowbray visited the home.
Vale of Mowbray, a local pork pie factory, has been baking pies in Leeming Bar since 1928. Residents at Leeming Garth were delighted to be presented with the opportunity to taste the company’s new selection of pork pies, which are delicately seasoned with an irresistible blend of herbs and spices.
Residents Violet and Aileen spent some time after the visit having some very fun, lively discussions about which were their favorite pies and what suggestions they could make for other pies.
Violet Tutin commented: “These pork pies are famous.”
Aileen Pounder added: “What a lovely surprise. It’s so exciting, I do love a pork pie.”
