The owner of a North Somerset care home says he is delighted after a £250,000 extension to the facility was unveiled last week.

Somerset House, in Yatton, is now home to a new garden room and three new bedrooms.

The work took about a year to complete but it now means people living at the High Street home are now able to enjoy a new communal area for socialising and enjoying group activities.

The garden room was officially opened with a party on Wednesday evening, which featured live music from Bristol band The Filtonaires.

Home owner Giles Livingstone said: “We have now got this space for socialising and it means it is much easier to put activities on. It also leads on to a secluded courtyard garden.
