Afternoon tea for Freda

A group of residents at Birch Green Care Home got together recently for a special afternoon tea.


The occasion was held in memory of former resident Winifred Edwards, known as Freda. A much-loved resident, Freda recently passed away.


Freda loved afternoon tea, so everyone thought it was a fitting tribute to enjoy fresh cream cakes and raise a glass to her.


We all miss Freda, and it’s good to know her family were so grateful to all the staff and residents at Birch Green for making her feel so welcome and part of the family.

Creative cake decorating

Residents of Birch Green’s upper floor spent time recently decorating cakes.


Armed with trusty cups of tea and cake decorating accessories, our residents transformed plain cupcakes into colourful treats they couldn’t wait to eat.


We all then went outside and enjoyed our cakes in the garden with our cups of tea.



Teaching dominos

We love playing traditional games here at Birch Green, and recently our domino team gathered to pass on a few tips.


Staff member Donna had never played and we were only too happy to give her some tips and enjoy a game in the process.



Arts and crafts on the agenda at Birch Green

Birch Green’s bistro became home to an arts and crafts room again recently.


A small group of residents gathered to use materials including pens, chalk, card and other accessories to make their colourful creations.


This multi functioning room got a little bit messy by the time they'd finished, but everyone agreed that's all part of the fun! 




Marking D-Day

After observing our minute’s silence to commemorate D-Day, after lunch popular entertainer Tina Riley came to visit playing all our favourite songs.


Everyone joined in with plenty of singing and dancing to be had and we were all proud to have celebrated the important occasion in true Birch Green style.
