Hampton and Gwen Picnic in the Park

Residents and staff from Hampton Grange and Gwen Walford Nursing Homes in Hereford attended the 'Picnic in the Park' in Leominster on 13th July, hosted by Services for Independent Living.

Bringing together care providers and service users from across Herefordshire, the picnic was arranged to raise awareness of social care, recognise the work of those employed in the care sector, and unite care users to enjoy a fun day out.

Hampton Grange and Gwen Walford joined fellow Rotherwood Healthcare care home, Lynhales Hall, to enjoy picnic food in the Summer sunshine. Attendees took part in the world record attempt to photograph the most social care providers and users in a heart formation using a drone, for which 53 people took part.

Lifestyle Coordinator, Nicky Thomas, said:
"We thoroughly enjoyed coming together with other residents and care providers from across Herefordshire. Our residents loved meeting new people, especially over a picnic which has our residents reminiscing of childhood picnics in the park. It was a real celebration of the care sector and we came away feeling proud of the work we do supporting older people".

Hampton Grange provides Specialist Dementia Care, while Gwen Walford offers Residential and Nursing Care. For more information, or to arrange a viewing, please contact the Home Manager, Louise Craddock, on  01432 272418.
