All aboard for a trip to the garden centre

Residents of St Mary’s Nursing Home in Moston, Manchester, took a trip out to the garden centre with our activities co-ordinators, Norma and Denise.

Four residents, including two wheelchair users, boarded a minibus for the journey to Ashton Moss Garden Centre in nearby Ashton-Under-Lyne.

The group enjoyed a lunch of sandwiches and jacket potatoes in the café – and had fun browsing everything from garden plants, to pets such as fish and rabbits, plus Christmas decorations and gifts.

Denise said: “We had a great time. Garden centres are fantastic at this time of year. There’s so much to see – something for everyone. The residents really enjoyed themselves.”

We’re now planning a Christmas lunch out for a larger group of residents, to continue the festivities.
