Event celebrates care home gardeners
A celebration event was held at St Peter’s care home in Bury St Edmunds 2018
An event to celebrate green-fingered enthusiasts in care homes in Bury St Edmunds was held last week.
The Senior Green Fingers celebration was held on Tuesday, August 7, at St Peter’s House nursing home in Bury, with Cornwallis Court being crowned as overall winners.
The contest, run by the town’s horticultural organisation Bury in Bloom, is open to nursing, care and residential homes as well as day care centres.
Susan Dunne, senior green fingers judge, said: “We were delighted to see the enthusiasm and engagement of residents and clients in the gardens of all those that entered the senior green fingers competition this year.
“It would be lovely if more nursing and residential homes entered the competition in 2019.”
Melanie Lesser, Bury in Bloom coordinator, said: “Bury in Bloom are very grateful to our volunteer judges who visited all the gardens.”
