Care Homes may be closed to visitors and day trips on hold, but that has not stopped residents at Ferrars Hall enjoying their very own seaside experience.
As part of the Country Court in Bloom annual gardening competition staff and residents at the Huntingdon care home have made their own beach, including a beach bar made from up-cycled pallets serving mocktails and ice creams. Complete with games of hoopla, buckets and spades and a paddling pool the new beach area has been a great way for residents to enjoy their outside space.
The themed area of the garden complements the raised beds and aviary which residents at Ferrars Hall already enjoy in their garden.
Residents have been making the most of the sunshine during the lockdown and have spent as much time as possible in the garden.
“We’ve been doing lots of gardening for our Country Court in Bloom gardening competition, we’ve had some wonderful donations of plants from families and local businesses,” said Hannah Mills, Customer Relations Manager at Ferrars Hall. “We’ve also been getting creative with some new garden games, this week we set up balloon targets and fired water pistols at them, the residents absolutely loved it. Needless to say, quite a few of the care team got wet too!”
Throughout the lockdown the care team at Ferrars Hall have been working hard to minimise the impact of the current situation for residents. Getting out into the garden has been a great way to stay healthy and enjoy the warmer weather and keeping busy with games and gardening has kept everyone’s spirits up too.
