Earlier on in the year, we conducted an experiment in the garden. For a long time, the Gardening Team have been plagued by Mares Tail which is a deep-rooted perennial weed that spreads quickly, forming a dense carpet of foliage that crowds out other plants. It was suggested that the pigs be brought in to sort out the problem. So, a run was made and the pigs were brought up by our two Work Experience lads, Sam & Ryan. The pigs rapidly started to chew their way through the Mares Tail and within weeks, a completely new area was established that had previously been choked with weeds. A happy result for both Gardening Team and Pigs alike!
An afternoon spent getting to know each other
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
