Easter hopped into homes in Oxfordshire this bank holiday weekend and residents enjoyed lots of seasonal activities in the hot weather.

Children from Witney and Barton enjoyed Easter egg hunts and Easter bonnet competitions, put on by Madley Park and Townsend.

In Banbury, Larkrise held an Easter Fete with pony rides and a ventriloquist singer. A local playgroup came into the home for an Easter egg hunt and created some beautiful Easter crafts with the residents. Larkrise’s talented chef also made some beautiful homemade Easter eggs for each of the residents as a special surprise.

Chilterns Court in Henley invited Millars Ark mobile farm into the home and residents enjoyed seeing the lovely animals they brought in.

At Stirlings in Wantage the home had an Easter party which included a soul and jazz singer, an Easter bonnet competition, a guess the weight of the Easter cake competition and an Easter egg hunt. 

Along with a competitive game of Easter bingo with chocolatey prizes, Marston Court in Oxford got baking and made hot cross buns. They also attended a performance of an Easter play at a local church. The play, called 'The Three Gifts', was written by one of the home’s brilliant residents, Sheila Brinkworth, so it was a very special moment when residents and the team saw it brought to life on stage. The play was then performed a second time at the home for family and friends during an Easter coffee morning.

Some living eggs arrived at Westgate in Wallingford: residents were delighted to watch them hatch and see the fluffy chicks emerge from their shells. This, along with their Easter quiz, egg hunt and Easter baking meant that the home was feeling very seasonal and ready to enjoy the sunny Easter weekend.
