HC-One’s The Moat House care home were delighted as Resident, Barbara, was commended recently for her gardening skills.
Barbara was extremely pleased as she received a ‘highly commended’ certificate alongside a £25 gift card for her green-fingered gardening skills.
The gardening competition took place earlier this year, and judges had such a difficult decision to make as the entries were all so impressive.
James Greene, home manager and Area Quality Director, presented the certificate to Barbara, as her grandson Max and his partner attended the home to congratulate her.
Barbara was overwhelmed with pride as she did not expect to receive anything for her entry, and she made the decision to share her prize money with the fellow Residents, to purchase hyacinth bulbs to grow a flower in each person’s room.
James Greene, home manager, commented: “we are so pleased for Barbara. She is well deserving of the award and tried so hard with her gardening.”
