Abbotsleigh Care Home creates Right Royal Jubilee Garden

As part of this year’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, our residents and staff at Abbotsleigh Care Home entered a fun competition running across all Nellsar’s 13 Homes, to see who could create the best royal-themed garden.

The judging criteria were:

Creativity: How well the Jubilee theme had been executed in the garden design.
Collaboration: How well staff teams worked with and included residents.
Presentation: How well presented and eye-catching the garden looked.

We had great fun transforming the front of our Home and gardens into a Jubilee tribute, with red, white and blue colours, flag bunting and regal purple planting – we even made a crown. Our boat in the back garden made a perfect centre piece with a Queen’s Union Jack flag.

Nellsar’s Operations Director Glenda Osmotherly and Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv Stead had great pleasure in judging the entries last week and, although we didn’t win, our wonderful garden caught their eye.

They commented:
‘Such stunning purple Jubilee hanging baskets in their front gardens. The giant regal crown and colourful, themed flower beds and Union Jack decorations in the rear gardens are just perfect!’

We are so delighted and have all been enjoying the wonderful garden we have created. Congratulations to everyone involved!

 

 

Sonya Lodge Residential Care Home were awarded first prize for their amazing Union Jack planting and crown pergola. St Winifreds Care Home took second prize for their painted pots, patriotic planting and London themed decorations and Silverpoint Court Residential Care Home came in third place with a Queen-inspired garden, featuring a beautiful waterfall.
