We celebrated with The Guide Dogs Worcester our handing over of a giant cheque for the £2,500 raised by our residents, family and friends throughout 2023. A fantastic achievement!

This year our new Residents Committee (made up of three nursing residents and three residential residents) have earmarked fundraising to a garden project at The Lawns. We have already started putting their plans in place with three new raised beds on wheels, which will be planted with vegetables.

They would like a herb garden, a greenhouse for cuttings and seedlings, a potting bench and more.

Thank you to the new cohort of students from the Lower Sixth of Kings School Worcester who have been helping build two kit-form greenhouses from Gardenline. We also had an enchanting visit from the children of Kempsey Primary for World Book Day.

We are doing something funny for money on 15th March for Red Nose Day. There will be a focus on hydrating food and drinks for Nutrition and Hydration Week – smoothies, mocktails and fruit kebabs! Easter preparations are also well underway and our Easter raffle will be drawn at our Easter Hat Parade on 28th March.

We are starting a new Debate Group fortnightly in April. We are celebrating St George’s Day and there is a Residents’ Meeting at the end of the month. With better weather in store (we hope!) we are resuming day trips, first to the museum and art gallery.

For entertainment at home, we have sessions booked with the musicians from The Orchestra of the Swan And armchair travel is back – first stop Spain!

We are welcoming new admissions for long stay or respite care. Please do contact our home manager Melanie Dawson and see the brochure on our website.

With best wishes from Joy Hoskins, Lifestyle & Well-being and Team Lawns.
