Tea and Scones for Barnes Lodge Care Home Residents
With the new lockdown well underway, we are all missing those luxuries such as clothes shopping and eating out. Barnes Lodge residents in Tonbridge have decided that they don’t need to go to a tea room to get one of their favourite treats of tea and scones!
On a cold, wintery January morning the Social Activities Facilitator at Barnes Lodge thought that if they couldn’t visit a lovely tea room, then they would bring the tea room to them.
This meant residents joined in with the task of baking their very own delicious scones, which was of course accompanied with fancy tea. Without having to face the wind and rain going on outside, residents had great fun together, in particular the ending, where the scones were demolished!
Kay Hawkins, Social Activities Facilitator at Barnes Lodge commented: “It really is the simple things in life that matter, and there is nothing better than creating your own treats and getting to eat them all together afterwards.
“Of course our residents are missing their loved ones, but being able to keep them happy and feeling safe at a time like this means the world. There is nothing like all sitting together and eating and chatting, it feels like one big family.”
