The finale of ‘Country Court Care In Bloom’ a gardening competition between homes in the Country Court Care group was celebrated with a garden party at Lyncroft Care Home in Wisbech.
Led by their well-being and activities coordinators, care and nursing homes in the Country Court Care group across the UK have been busy growing their own vegetables, flowers and plants and entering the results in a virtual village show.
Judging day was celebrated with a garden party attended by the mayor of Wisbech Steve Tierney as well as families, friends and the local community.
Special guests were children from the Wisbech Day Nursery who judged the best scarecrow category. The mayor also judged the categories alongside area manager, Suria Webb and Country Court Care managing director Alykhan Kachra and finance director Al-Karim Kachra.
Mr Kachra said: “Our residents have always enjoyed gardening but the “In Bloom” competition has introduced a competitive element which they have really embraced. “It’s been a fantastic response from all of our care homes, many have taken the opportunity to give their gardens a complete make-over, and the transformation has been really impressive.”
Swanholme Court Care Home in Lincoln was announced as the overall winner of the competition.
