The memory of a former nursing home resident will live on thanks to the donation of a commemorative outside light and plaque.

The donations were made to Portland Nursing Home, in Park Road, Buxton, in loving memory of Alice Armstrong by Robert and Karen Armstrong.

Alice was a resident of the nursing home for many years.

She was a nurse herself and the commemorative plaque reads ‘In memory of Alice Armstrong, lighting our way to and from work’, which evokes memories of the most famous nurse the lady of the lamp Florence Nightingale.
