A care home in Malvern is inviting emergency workers to take a well deserved break.

Elgar Court Care Home launched its 'Take A Break' campaign this week, offering emergency service workers a spot to rest, with a hot or cold beverage and a snack on offer, either to enjoy on-site or takeaway if pressed for time.

The campaign was introduced as a way to show appreciation towards emergency workers in the area.

Maria Griffiths, Elgar Court’s activities co-ordinator, launched the initiative by hosting the Malvern Community Policing Team, and even got the chance to test out the emergency services kit firsthand for herself, even donning a pair of handcuffs.

During the team's visit, the residents heard about their work and were shown a range of equipment from body cameras and tasers to enforcement batons and smart water tagging sprays.

Sarah Cadwallader, general manager for Elgar Court Care Home, said: "We all know how hard our emergency services work and how much our Malvern community rely on them.

"We wanted to say thank you for all that they do, and this is our way of giving back.

"We want our local emergency services to know they are always welcome here at Elgar Court Care Home."
