Nellsar in Bloom Themed Garden winners announced

Nellsar’s Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv Stead has been delighted at the response from across Nellsar’s homes for the Nellsar in Bloom festival’s ‘Themed Garden’ challenge,  running throughout August.

Thanking everyone involved in the creative projects, she commented;

“Well, what can I say?! The pictures I have received over the last few weeks for the themed garden part of Nellsar in Bloom have been AMAZING! Thank you all so much for making the gardens in your Homes so great for our residents to enjoy. I have been blown away by the creativity once again.”

The Themed Garden judging panel was made up of Nellsar’s Operations Managers, who had many discussions and debates over all the fantastic entries.

We are excited to announce our three winning gardens:

1st place: Bromley Park Care Home with their beautiful Fairy Garden.
Built on a previously unused piece of garden, residents were very involved in ether planting, painting fences, making the decorative items, fairies, light catchers and animals. Family members were also involved and the residents took great pleasure showing their visitors around. A truly beautiful and well loved spot! This has been a real ongoing project across the summer.

2nd place: Woodstock Residential Care Home with their lovely painted tree and gnomes.
This was painted by residents and children from the local Oasis School. Handprints of residents and children together in a ‘tree of life’ is something that can continue to grow. They also created a lovely gnome house which the residents really enjoyed painting and plotting – great fun and very colourful.

3rd place: Loose Valley Care Home with their beautiful miniature Fairy Garden.
Everything was handmade and painted by the residents. The area used was overgrown and unloved, so this was cleared and made to look beautiful and it is in a position where residents who are less mobile can see it from their windows. Fabulous.

Prizes will be sent to all our winners. Congratulations again!

Viv and the Operations team want to thank everyone who took part with so much enthusiasm and energy – residents, family members, friends and staff.

September’s theme…
This month, our theme is Wildlife Engagement; encouraging ‘all creatures great and small’ into the garden and helping them to thrive through feeders, planting and housing. From hedgehogs to butterflies, bird feeders to bug hotels, we’re excited to see how our Homes encourage, embrace and enjoy wildlife.

We can’t wait to see the entries!
