A former keen gardener, Resident Betty Steele volunteered to help brighten up the roof terrace which was equipped with baskets and containers but was rather lacking in colour. So, with funding from the home and accompanied by her daughter and granddaughter, Betty had a trip to a garden centre to select the plants she required.
Enlisting the help of other keen gardeners, the Residents quickly transformed the terrace. They then enjoyed a cup of coffee while they sat back to admire their handiwork. Betty, assisted by Cheryl our Wellbeing Mentor, has since set up a rota for watering and deadheading to ensure that the pots continue to look their best throughout the summer months.
Many thanks to Betty and her team for all their hard work!
