Newcroft Lodge Care Home Residents Enjoy Gardening

01/06/2016

Residents of Newcroft Lodge Care Home in Holywood are taking advantage of the good weather by planting vegetables in their garden.

Sam McMahon, Care Home Manager explained, "the vegetable trugs were purchased with money from our charitable funds following consultation with our relatives in the home. We had wanted to develop our side garden and provide a safe area for the residents to enjoy the sun and yet engage in meaningful productive activity.

Vegetables were chosen because the residents can then enjoy them once they've grown when they are used in the kitchen!"

Pictures below show staff, residents and family members helping plant the vegetables.
