Care home creates its own Orient Express

A Portsmouth care home will be hoping to get its residents ‘all aboard’ for its new project — creating a train carriage buffet car — with the help of Covers Timber & Builders Merchants.


The Orient Express-inspired train carriage, which will provide residents with an area to enjoy hot drinks, cakes and snacks in surroundings reminiscent of the bygone era of steam travel, is being installed by Blue Water Care Home at its property on Kingston Road. The new structure will also include its very own ticket office and waiting room area.


As well as rare items sourced by Blue Water Care Home, including seats, train doors, and luggage racks dating back to the 1930s, Covers Timber & Builders Merchants, which is based on Norway Road, will be donating a range of building materials to help the dementia care specialist complete its ambitious project.


Julie Holland, who is Receptionist Administrator at Blue Water Care Home, said: “We are so excited about our new Orient Express-inspired buffet car and can’t wait to unveil it to our residents. We cannot thank Covers enough for their generosity in helping us to complete this project, which will further enhance our facilities and be a great source of fun, interest and relaxation for our residents.”


Dale Lambourne, Depot Manager at Covers Portsmouth, said: “We are delighted to be helping Blue Water Care Home with such a fantastic idea. We can’t wait to see the buffet car in all its glory once it has been completed.”
