Residents at L’Hermitage Care Centre and Beaumont Villa have held a mini Battle of Flowers.

The parade, which was cancelled because of coronavirus, is usually attended by the majority of people at both care homes. 

Disappointed that the event was not going ahead - the care home decided to bring it to them

Because the Battle of the Flowers parade was cancelled because of covid, our residents were disappointed. They needed to be cheered up, they’d go every year. Our staff pulled together to give everyone a fantastic day.

The gardener, Reece, provided the music, the care team decorated wheelchairs whilst crafting handmade flowers and the chef put on a big buffet. 

In total 40 residents enjoyed the celebrations.
