What a wonderful week we have had! We have all been entranced, watching our wonderful chicks break out of their eggs and hatch out into beautiful bundles of yellow fluff. Every cheep and flutter of their tiny wings has brought smiles of delight to all of us.

Our chicks have not been the only new life emerging here at the home. In Gardening Club we have seen our sun flower seeds burst from the earth and reach for the skies and now the debate...When will be the best time to plant the seedlings out? From small pots of earth to tall plants in just one week, amazing! As you can see in the pictures the race is well and truly on for the tallest sunflower.

We have also had the good fortune of a superb visit from the good folks of ‘wild science’ who brought in a wonderful collection of animals. Giving the opportunity for all of our residents to see, feel and get close to animals they might never have seen before. By far the most popular was the albino African hedgehog. Its been a wonderful week at the home. Happy Easter to all! 🐥

The week got off to a wonderful start as residents joined Rosie from Music and Movement in singing and dancing. The fun was so dazzlingly good some of us, as you can see, had to wear shades! 😎

Later in the week we prepared for Easter by coming together at our cookery club and made some Easter biscuit, with nutmeg, sugar, lemon rind, flour and currants and eggs as ingredients it really wasn’t a surprise that none of our Easter biscuits have lasted until Easter. Most were snapped up only hours aftercoming out of the oven!

Fun time of carpet bowls had us remembering the hot and sunny days of summers past. Ladies and gentlemen dressed in white, and the sound of bowl tapping against bowl drifting on the breeze.

Hopefully summer days will soon be here and we can get out in the garden as we have new vegetable table built and ready to use and gardeners keen to get out and put it to good use!

Summer is here! (You might not believe it looking out of the window), but it’s official, summer time has begun and with that, brings the start of a new season of the gardening club here at Charlton Kings Care Home. Nicola from ‘Alive’ brought her gardening expertise and the wonderful Ann from our local church brought her enthusiasm. Together, with a keen group of gardeners, we have started several projects. We have a sunflower competition, all residents have planted seeds and now we are eagerly waiting for them to germinate in our conservatory. Flowers boxes and pots have also been created and are looking splendid. In the weeks ahead we are building a raised garden table so when the weather gets warm the gardening club will be growing their own vegetables, bring on the sun shine!

Keeping us fit for all our gardening work was Tanya from G Fitness, working on all our important muscle groups to keep everyone as strong and as mobile as possible.

On Wednesday Anna from Timeless Tunes entertained everyone with a wonderful selection of music and songs that had every one smiling and singing a long.

Of course we have a Grand National Sweep Stake where residents and staff alike are joining in to win a big Easter Egg, good luck every one!!
