Earlier this year, residents voted to have a sunflower competition to see who could grow the largest sunflower. We've had some great results with many growing well over 5ft tall.

Meaningful activity for residents

With support from staff, residents planted their seeds then took great pride in caring for and monitoring their growth. There's been some flowers that didn't make it and some that have grown bigger than we would of thoughts. It's been a really positive, exciting and competitive activity for everyone taking part.

Here's our winner with her handmade sunflower rossette which was presented to her last week during a celebration event. We had a great day with runners up receving a terrys chocolate egg and a certificate of their achievements .

Celebration event


To make it into a proper little event we brought out a buffet and a refreshments, followed by an afternoon/evening of singing, dancing and entertainment.

Well done to our residents for their dedication looking after their sunflowers.
