LOCAL CARE HOME CELEBRATE GARDEN OPENING

Residents at Bupa’s St Christopher's Nursing Home, Drakes Way, Hatfield held an opening event, on Thursday 22 October to launch their revamped residential gardens, which have been created with the help of the Princes Trust. The Prince’s Trust programme, which is delivered by The YMCA; a christian charity committed to supporting all young people, spent three weeks at the home working on three garden projects. The projects involved clearing, replanting and some redesign work on the existing gardens. The Deputy Mayor of Welwyn, Councillor Howard Morgan, formally opened the gardens and was joined by officials from the Prince’s Trust and YMCA Watford and the young people involved in the project. Kay Henocq, home manager at Bupa’s St Christopher’s Nursing Home, said: “Everyone has worked extremely hard on the project and with the support of the young people from the Prince’s Trust we have created three lovely gardens. The open day was a great way to celebrate everything that was achieved and residents and their families are really enjoying the new gardens. A big thank you to everyone involved.” Community affairs consultant Siobhan Drane says “The Prince’s Trust is one of Bupa’s nominated charities and we are great supporters of the wonderful work they do. A large number of our care homes have worked very closely with the charity this year and it’s wonderful that this project at St Christopher’s has been so successful for everyone involved. We’re very grateful to these young people who have helped to create a lovely environment for our residents, staff and visitors to enjoy.”
