Sussex care home welcomes wildlife into its gardensResidents and Colleagues have been working together to make the garden areas at HC-One’s Oakhill House care home wildlife-friendly.

Residents took part in an arts and crafts session to paint and decorate garden d├ęcor in time for the new wildlife that emerge with spring. Together they painted wooden birdseed trays and insect houses to decorate the garden areas at the home.

Residents chose their favourite colours and, once dry, the wildlife-friendly crafts will brighten up the gardens just in time for the warmer weather.

Oakhill House Home Manager, Shaun Matthews, commented: “There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It was an exercise in mindfulness as Residents became absorbed in their tasks."
