Flower Park residents get on their bike to watch the Tour de Yorkshire

Residents and some of the team from Flower Park Care Home in Doncaster got on their bikes, as they went and watched a stage of the Tour de Yorkshire.

The residents and the team joined the throng of people who had all gathered in Conisborough to watch the cyclists.

Amanda Searle, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had a lovely day and cheered as the cyclists rode past. Watching the Tour de Yorkshire isn’t something the residents do every day. It’s a story they definitely shared with their families when they next came to visit.

“One of our residents, Colin is a retired Police Officer. Whilst he was out he spoke to one of the local bobbies on the beat, regaling them with stories of what it was like back in his day. Colin’s day was made when the officer posed for a photo with him.”

The trip was organised by Personal Activities Leader (PAL) Angela Cooper, who was unsuspectedly ambushed by BBC Radio Sheffield.

Amanda Searle added: “Angela worked hard to ensure this day ran smoothly for the residents. She acted like the ultimate professional when she was interviewed by Radio Sheffield. She showed no sign of nerves and did herself and Flower Park proud. Well done Angela, and sorry for trying to make you laugh on the radio.”
