    Tennents Brewery Tour

    Posted by Birdston Day Care Centre

    It was a true experience for our service users today as they visited the Tennents Brewery Museum for a guided tour.

    The Brewery and Museum is situated in the East end of Glasgow City Centre.

    The guided tour started at the Tennent’s Story Heritage Centre where we were taken on an immersive journey through the history of Scotland’s oldest brewery. Artefacts gathered from the first days of brewing in 1556, through to today revealed the origins and production of the famous beer.

    No brewery tour would be complete without a pint of the good stuff! After we discovered the craft behind the legendary brew, we were taken to the tasting experience for a free pint of brewery fresh Tennent’s Tank Beer poured straight from the impressive copper tanks. Tasty!

    After a couple of hours at the museum we loaded back onto the minibus and took a wee drive through Glasgow City Centre.

Pacific Care

Pacific Care Suspends Visiting to Care Homes March 2020

As part of our preventative Coronavirus preparations, Pacific Care has suspended visiting to our care homes.

Managing Director, Brendan Brawley said, “Our residents wellbeing is of paramount importance to us, so we have implemented a package of measures to protect our vulnerable residents. We have liaised with all residents and their families and they are supportive of the measures we are putting in place to protect their loved ones. These are preventative measures only and we are following guidance from the NHS.

We have not taken this decision lightly and appreciate this may cause some discomfort, but we feel it is sensible to take these precautionary measures at this time.”

Additional employee health and hygiene protocols are now in place and any non-essential visitors to the care home are now suspended. Residents and their families have been notified and understand the exceptional conditions of the current environment. Provisions have been put in place to ensure family members have regular contact with their loved ones through phone calls, FaceTime and Skype.

Best Wishes,
Brendan Brawley
