Fourteen rooms at a Sheringham nursing home are being enlarged to give residents direct garden access.

Lakeshore director Jeff Manning said: "This project will allow all residents larger common space and easier access across the entire home to our gardens with new pathways and seating areas. We won the Sheringham In Bloom award for several years for our gardens and now our residents will have better and easier ways to enjoy them.

"The rooms were purpose-built in the '70s, but standards have changed, so we are enlarging these 14 rooms by 50pc.

"We are also adding en-suites with showers, and the new exterior doors will allow immediate access to the outdoor gardens. New, wheelchair-accessible, resin pathways will lead to outdoor gathering areas with seating."
