November 01, 2017

Residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Redditch enjoyed spooky arts and crafts and storytelling when they were joined by local nursery children for the morning.

The team and residents at Brambles Residential Care Home on Birchfield Road welcomed youngsters aged three to four from Ragamuffins Day Nursery in Webheath to help get set for Halloween.

79 year-old resident, Jeffrey Chambers said: “It was a very enjoyable visit and I am very much looking forward to seeing them again soon.”

The children came equipped with their reading books, entertaining the residents with their stories and rolled up their sleeves to carve some spook-tacular pumpkins.

Deputy manager and Early Years teacher Joanne Walker added: “The children had a really wonderful time and it is so nice to see them building friendships with the lovely residents, remembering their friendly faces from our first visit. We can’t wait to visit again.”

The home’s activities leader, Fiona Morsy said: “Our residents always treasure the nursery’s visits; they listened delightedly as the children read their stories and loved getting creative carving the pumpkins.”
