Easter in Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire celebrated Easter with Easter egg hunts, Easter animals, games and fun!
The Lakes Care Centre in South Cerney held an Easter egg hunt, inviting along the local children and setting up clues around their beautiful garden for the children to find. The Lakes were delighted that some 2-day old lambs from a local small holding were able to come along. The children loved being able to interact with the lambs and feed them, they were so soft! The Lakes also had Ralph the rabbit for the children to hold and stroke.
After plenty of running around the garden clue hunting everyone finished off with a drink and some cake. The residents at The Lakes loved seeing all the children having such a great time and made sure the children all left with a goodie bag!
In South Gloucester, Thornbury saw residents from Grace Care Centre taking time to hide as many eggs as they could around the town, these included messages instructing the finder to bring their winning eggs to the home to claim their Prize! Throughout the long Easter weekend residents welcomed children and family members for their very own egg hunt amongst some of the biggest Tulip flowers ever seen.
Everyone was especially surprised when the Easter bunny made a visit to share the ‘EGG’citment with everyone. With the amazing weather bringing itself out from behind the clouds, everyone was treated to a few ice creams and cones made to order.
Edwardstow Court Care Centre in Stow-on-the-Wold hosted an Easter fun day with an egg scramble, a golden egg hunt and lots of garden games! Edwardstow welcomed the winners of their colouring competition from Stow Primary School to collect their prizes which were presented by our residents. The children loved having the garden to run around in and everyone was keen to find a golden prize egg! When it got too hot outside everyone came in for drinks and cakes or sat to do some colouring, before leaving with a goodie bag.
Monkscroft Care Centre in Cheltenham enjoyed an Easter themed visit from Encourage Animal Therapy. Everyone enjoyed meeting the lambs, one they named Shelley after the road that Monkscroft is on. The residents also enjoyed hugs from rabbits, guinea pigs, and even a Bearded Dragon named Spyro. Shelley was the star of the afternoon, her ‘Baa’ was heard throughout the building!
