Residents at Springhill Care Home will help transform our garden in coming months thanks to a series of gardening sessions.
Delivered by the Up and Active team from Hyndburn Leisure, the plan is to plant wild flower seeds and help them grow to make Springhill’s outside areas even more beautiful. Plans are also in place to grow some vegetables.
Ian from Up and Active led the first session, which took place indoors thanks to poor weather. Residents learnt about how to grow potatoes, with Ian using pine cones as a substitute for the vegetables!
Everyone had lots of fun and Ian even came equipped with a ukulele to lead a good sing-song. The next session will take place on May 28, and hopefully the weather will stay fine so everyone can enjoy some time outside.
