Dunstable Resident turns Head GardenerToday at Ridgeway Lodge care home, in Bedfordshire, one Resident has received a very special title. 

Tony Franklin, pictured, has received the ‘Head Gardener’ badge at the care home where he lives. 

Tony regularly enjoys pottering in the home’s garden, tending to the plants and tidying up the outdoors, so Colleagues thought he deserves some recognition for his helpfulness and kindness. Therefore, deciding to make him Resident Head Gardener. 

During the presentation with fellow Residents and Colleagues, he was full of smiles and wearing his badge with pride. 

One wellbeing Colleague commented, “When I see Tony working in the garden, he really does bring the sun out!”

Huge well done to Tony from everyone at HC-One.
