Creative residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Bridgwater have crafted spectacular headwear in time for Easter.
Spring was in the air at The Rosary Nursing Home in Mayfield Drive, when the residents and the team enjoyed an egg-stravaganza Easter bonnet parade ahead of the Easter holidays.
Beautifully bright bonnets
Rolling up their sleeves, residents lovingly created beautifully bright bonnets filled with vibrant feathers, colourful card, glitter and egg shells.
Ladies also crafted necklaces which were decorated with Easter themed accessories.
Residents proudly showed off their egg-cellent creations at the nursing home’s annual parade, where live music from Aaron Robinson and high-tea refreshments was also enjoyed.
“…I really love Easter…”
Resident Winifred Ellis, 90, said: “I haven’t made an Easter bonnet in years and it was great fun to make one and show it off at the parade.”
Joan Hurford, 92, “I enjoyed making the Easter bonnets! I really love Easter especially the chocolate, add a bit of ice cream then it’s perfect.”
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities assistant Chloe Hembery said: “Our residents have really enjoyed making their Easter bonnets. The activity brought back some wonderful memories of when our residents were children, it was lovely to hear.”
