Birch Green’s bakers

Birch Green was filled with the smells of freshly baked bread recently.


We couldn’t miss the opportunity to celebrate Real Bread Week in one of our popular cooking classes.


To mark the occasion, some fabulous baking skills were shown by our residents, and we all tucked into fresh bread while it was still warm – topped with best butter of course.

Lets make pizza

Our pizzas made from pitta bread went down a real treat in this week’s cookery class.

With plenty of toppings to choose from to place on top, then straight in the oven to cook, our ladies and gentlemen (and staff team) couldn't wait to enjoy the tasty pizzas.

Everyone really looked forward to tucking in and there wasn’t a crumb left in sight!

We are looking forward to making them again soon.


What's your favourite topping?


Eyes down for bingo fun at Birch Green

We always have a great afternoon when its bingo time at Birch Green Care Home, it's a firm favourite with our ladies and gentlemen.

Everyone takes marking down their numbers very seriously with sweets and toiletries to be won, but we still have time for lots of fun.

We love interacting with the game and if you happen to be around you’ll hear us shouting out legs eleven NUMBER ELEVEN and all the eights EIGHTY EIGHT, never fails to make us smile.

Bingo is a fantastic traditional game to play and it’s staying on our activities planner for as long as our residents want it to – so next time you see or hear us playing bingo come and join in.


Sing-a-long lunch date for Birch Green

We were recently welcomed back to the local Toby Carvery for the popular Helping Hands lunch get together.


Residents took the opportunity to meet up with old friends and also made some new ones.


After a delicious, warming stew followed by chocolate cake and cream we had a singalong with George.


Lots of dancing and plenty of fun was had before we made our way back home, we do really enjoy these lunches and we always look forward to the next one.

We’re back! Children return to Birch Green Care Home

Excited smiles lit up the faces of our residents when the children from St James’ Primary School returned back to Birch Green Care Home.

Following their previous visit, a friendship has formed between residents and the schoolchildren who couldn’t wait to get back to see us.  

Heidi made a card for Vincent which read ‘you are a good singer’ and he couldn’t have been happier to receive it.  

Gill Seddon, Activities co-ordinator at Birch Green, said: “We had another fun filled day with the children and they greeted us, saying: ‘we’re back’. They ran in so excited to see everyone. 

“It’s such a therapeutic and beneficial experience for everyone involved. The children and the residents thoroughly enjoy themselves and are all tired out once the visit is over.”   

Year One teacher, Shelley Lee, said: “We made cards together in readiness for give a friend a card day next week and Heidi wanted to make one for Vincent as she loves his singing and for Mo because she makes her laugh with her glove puppet.”
