Nottingham care home opens allotment in memory of ResidentHC-One’s Silverwood care home recently experienced the loss of one of their Residents – Stephen Knutton – last year, and through this, decided to honour him through one of his favourite hobbies – the garden.

Stephen loved to be outside in the garden, getting involved in planting and caring for the flowers and vegetables, and so, Colleagues at the home decided to build something in his memory – Knuttons Corner – a raised bed allotment in Stephen’s honour.

Once the area was prepared and ready to be used, Stephen’s daughter, Rachael, was invited to open the area. Rachael felt overwhelmed at the corner of the garden, remarking at her gratitude for this.

Rachael cut the ribbon which allowed the Residents to enjoy the space, at a convenient height for all, allowing easy access.

Rachael commented: “I can’t believe you have done such an amazing tribute to my dad! He would love this, thank you so much.”

Home Manager, Debra Meynell, also remarked: “Stephen was an intelligent, gentle and caring Resident, he would be so proud to have this space in his name.”
