Care Home Residents’ Crafty Garden Project is Un-bee-lievable
Residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore got stuck into a bug-tastic craft project this week, in a bid to support the wildlife in their garden.
They recently made a hedgehog house and this week, the residents of the Drewery Drive care home decided to create a bug hotel, as part of their big summer garden project.
The crafty residents got together in the activity room, armed with all the materials they needed and some coloured paints, where they worked together to create a bright and inviting home for the wildlife in their garden.
The residents and the activity team have big plans for their garden this summer, which, once complete will include a sensory garden, water pond and even an ice cream shop. Keen to provide an encouraging habitat for the local wildlife, they also want to add a squirrel run alongside their hedgehog house and bug hotel.
Hannah Newman-Brown and Debbie Padmore, the home’s activity coordinators said: “We have a lovely garden here at Rogers House with a lot of space but there is so much potential to do more.
“We really want to create a welcoming and inspiring place for the residents, as well as giving the local wildlife a safe space, so we have lots of plans for the coming months to breathe new life into the garden.”
