Country Court Care in Bloom gets underway!

The Grove Care Home WalthamCountry Court Care in bloom is a competition between homes in the Country Court Care group. Led by our Well-being and Activities Coordinators our residents will be growing their own vegetables, flowers and plants then entering the results in a virtual village show on our Facebook page.


Each home will take a photo of their entry and that will be added to a dedicated Facebook album on the Country Court Care Facebook page.  Entries can be submitted at any time during the course of the competition, judging will be at the end of August.
