Finger licking fun

Residents at Birch Green spent time recently decorating cakes.


Each fairy cake was given its own unique twist, some with icing sugar flowers, others with marshmallows, and one featuring a tribute to Liverpool Football Club!


Once prepared they didn’t last long, they were very popular!



Birthday meal for Grenville

At Birch Green we love our monthly visits to the local Toby Carvery for the Helping Hands senior citizen lunch.


This time we had two new faces joining us, Royce and Grenville, who thoroughly enjoyed lunch followed by a sing-along and a chance to burn off a few extra calories with a dance-off.


The trip was also a chance to celebrate Grenville’s birthday a day early, as he was spending his big day visiting family.



St David’s Day celebrations

Birch Green welcomed back the singers from Raised Voices Choir recently.


The choir was so popular with residents after a Christmas performance, and they enjoyed visiting Birch Green so much, they returned to help us mark St David’s Day.


The choir gave a fantastic afternoon’s performance of some much-loved songs.



International Women’s Day at Birch Green

In celebration of International Women’s Day, residents at Birch Green decided to start the home’s Mother’s Day display early this year.


Each month the central display in Birch Green’s reception is given over to a new theme, and this month it features a wonderful dedication to mothers.


Residents supplied photographs of their mums, who had lived through two world wars and many other challenges.


One of our residents, Gladys, shared with us a photo of four generations of her family, featuring her older sister Joan as a baby, her mother, grandmother and great grandmother.


Thanks to all those who helped out with this special display.



Pancakes all round at Birch Green

Never ones to miss an opportunity for a get-together, residents at Birch Green thoroughly enjoyed pancake day.


Staff cooked some delicious pancakes and delivered them to residents on a trolley laden with toppings including lemon, strawberries and blueberries.


We had a great afternoon and loved tucking into the lovely pancakes.
