The Lazy Bird – Wetherby’s clucking good new restaurant! Wetherby boasts many delicious eateries from quirky coffee shops to fancy restaurants, and along with its beautiful river, it is the perfect destination for a date night or day trip out! Tadcaster Echo was invited to visit The Lazy Bird situated on Bank Street to review its menu and cocktails. On arrival, the inside of the restaurant was perfectly nice and featured plenty of space for the consumption of chicken and booze. However, we were very happy to make our way upstairs to a newly created rooftop space. As the weather was hot and sunny, it was the perfect spot for a cocktail before dining. The ‘Bitch Juice’ consisted of fresh raspberry liquor, dry orange, Aperol and rose cava. The drink was not too sweet but perfect and crisp. The menu is full of puns which entertained us whilst we decided what to eat. It didn’t take long for the food to arrive on the table and wow, we were not ready for the amount! A word of warning before you visit, these portion sizes are

extreme! It is definitely recommended you go hungry or possibly share a side as you will not be disappointed with the amount of food arriving at your table. We couldn’t even fit the burgers into our mouths! The ‘Wake Up Neo’ boasted honey and garlic buffalo sauce, blue cheese and celery. The burger tasted incredible and the sauce oozed out of the bun. The ‘Drop it Like its Hot’ burger was also delicious. On top of the chicken was fiery Korean sauce, Vietnamese crunch slaw, lemon, coriander, fresh pickled chilli and cucumber ribbons. The sauce did have a kick but was also very tangy which gave a balance between the hot and sweet flavours. The accompany the massive burgers was a side of ‘Hit me gravy one more time’ which were fries topped with gravy and cheese. And lastly, a special mention to the cocktail menu. The quirky names and incredible flavours makes you want to try the whole menu! Overall, The Lazy Bird had such a cool vibe and is definitely somewhere to visit with your friends or family for a celebration or just a catch-up. However, don’t have much to eat before you visit cause you will certainly be full when you leave. For ‘chick n tunes’ this is the place to be.

Wetherby Care Home Staff P the Benefits of Working in C Staff from Windsor Court, on Sandbeck Way, are sharing what they love about their job with the aim to encourage more people into the sector Windsor Court has been celebrating Recruitment Month throughout July, spreading the word that social care is the place to work for a rewarding and successful career. Using the tag line, ‘you come for a job and end up with a career’, the care team are promoting the benefits of working in a care environment to draw new workers to the sector, as well as those who already work in social care and are keen to progress through the ranks to senior roles. During the month-long campaign, Sophie Summerscales shared her inspirational story, explaining how a summer internship in 2012 to access a career in nursing became the best career move she ever made, after recently being promoted to Care Manager at Windsor Court. Sophie told Tadcaster Echo: “In my time with Ideal Carehomes I have learnt so much, grown as a person and met some incredible people. I always loved to help people and I found my passion helped me to reach career heights I never thought possible. Management have always supported me to achieve my goals, giving me access to many educational pathways to continue to progress up the ranks. I hope in the future I will commission a care home of my own!” New starter, Shell Norris, explained how a career in care changed her attitude towards life. She said: “Each day I would wake up for work feeling unmotivated and sluggish, however, since making

the shift to working in social care, I have a spring in my step! My work brings me real joy and I feel proud to be part of a company that inspires so many people to make a difference every day. I am at my happiest when the people around me have huge smiles and knowing I contributed really does mean the world to me!’. After successfully launching the Ideal Academy training pathways prior to the pandemic, Head of Development and Engagement, Sarah Colling, is keen to attract more people to work in social care too. She said, “We have run the Recruitment Month to reach out to anyone looking to start a career in care, or those who are looking for the next step in their care career. We have so many ‘success stories’ of people throughout our teams who have moved up from Care Assistant all the way through to Home Manager after successful training via our Ideal Academy. As a growing company opening more care homes, there are always plenty of opportunities for career growth’. Home Manager, Paula Mountjoy, said, “There are very few jobs that have such highly rewarding outcomes as social care and the stories we have shared this month have really been testament to that. Over the course of the pandemic, the media has really shone a light on how amazing care workers are and it is wonderful to see them get the recognition they deserve.’ For more information, please visit www. or contact Paula on 01937 586 651.
