This afternoon, Vernon attended the grand re-opening of St Andrews House, Mapperley. The sheltered accommodation site has been redeveloped by Gedling Homes and Nottinghamshire County Council and will now run an "extra care" scheme to support residents.
Vernon and the other guests enjoyed performances from local school children and were treated to high tea in the new dining room. Vernon is pictured above with Nottinghamshire County Council Leader Alan Rhodes and Gedling Borough Council Leader John Clarke.
