Introducing the new manager to our activities

Our residents love fresh fruit, so we decided to make our own fruit skewers with melted chocolate outside in the courtyard. Each resident had the choice of strawberries, mango, pineapple and kiwis to slide onto their skewers, they could then drizzle them in milk, white and dark chocolate.  It wasn't long before the fruit and chocolate were gone, with help from our new general manager Xin. It was a nice way to welcome her to Badgeworth Court even if she did get covered in melted chocolate!

Blooms garden centre

For the residents that love gardening we decided to go to Blooms the garden centre. We stopped off at the Chip shop on the way for some lunch which everyone enjoyed. The residents loved looking at everything in the garden centre, especially the plants and flowers outside. It was a fun day out for all and we’re looking forward to the next one.

Flower arranging

Flower Arranging is a regular activity held here at Badgeworth, which our residents love. Today our residents got stuck straight in, they loved the smell of the fresh flowers and putting them into the vase of water. One of the residents particularly loved the pink carnations and liked the feel of the petals on her face. We played a 60's soundtrack in the background which the residents couldn't help but sing along to while they worked.

We recently visited Winston Churchill Memorial Gardens in Cheltenham. The resident loved seeing the gardens which were full of beautiful flowers and plants which created the perfect view for us to look at while we sat and had out lunch. The residents enjoyed looking around the formal rose garden, yew avenue and historic graves.
