Rogers House Residents Relish Recycling Project
With the arrival of the autumn days, residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home have started a new craft project, to keep them entertained over the winter months.
Using old greetings cards, the Drewery Drive care home residents have started a project that will not only enable them to do their bit in helping the environment, it will also result in a wonderfully decorative feature wall, once complete.
Armed with an abundance of recycled cards and enough cups of tea to keep them going, the artistic residents spent a morning cutting the various cards designs into strips and triangles and creating collages of mismatched patterns onto a4 paper.
Once they have enough, they’ll create an even bigger collage on the wall, of all the a4 sheets to create a feature wall, which from a distance, will look like patchwork.
Jackie Miles, Home Manager at Rogers House said: “Our residents really enjoy crafting and they were very excited to get stuck into a big project, which they can see through from the beginning to end.
“The designs the residents have already put together look absolutely excellent, so we know it is going to look really wonderful once when can get them all up onto the wall.”
