RESIDENTS at an Otley care home are enjoying new gazebos thanks to local Freemasons.

The Royal Wharfedale Masonic Lodge was asked if it could contribute towards the purchase of a gazebo for Teal Beck Care Home, and donated £1,000. The Lodge’s Charity Representative, Trevor Backhouse, said: “We ended up with enough to buy two gazebos, wooden benches and some garden planters. These will enhance the quality of life for the residents. Freemasons are always pleased to help community groups and our Provincial Grand Master was delighted to help with this project.”
