You can also find out about the events and activities we’ll be enjoying in the coming weeks.

Bringing the garden into our home

Here at Woodbury House Care Home we have brought a little of the great outdoors inside, with a new greenhouse in our Memory Lounge.

Our residents helped to paint and decorate the area where we have a wonderful exhibition of Harvest art created by the pupils at Farley Hill Primary School as well as our own paintings, foliage, beautifully scented fresh flowers, hanging baskets and birds.

Resident Paula said, “This is lovely, we’ve brought the garden into our home.”

The Granby complete the ‘Henshaws Hundreds Challenge’

Residents at The Granby Care Home have raised a wonderful £165 for local charity Henshaws by taking part in the ‘Henshaws Hundreds Challenge’ to help raise money for people living with sight loss and disabilities.

Henshaws Specialist College in Harrogate empowers young people living with a disability to progress and live life the way they want to through a personalised approach to learning and care.

The challenge was to do a hundred of anything so we decided to hold a huge Teddy Bears’ picnic in the middle of our ballroom with 100 teddies donated by team members and take it in turns to complete 100 laps around the edge of the room.
