When Murdoch House Care Home in Wokingham entered into the local ‘Garden in Bloom’ competition, they knew they’d face some stiff competition.
The team and residents worked hard planting, de-weeding, tidying and pruning to ensure their garden looked the best when the competition judge came round.
Christine Tyrrell, Home Manager, said: “Everyone has worked really hard to get the garden up to this standard. We were really pleased when we were informed we’d won the Silver Prize in the care home section of the competition. Everyone was over joyed as the hours they’d spent putting their green fingers to good use really paid off. We now also have a beautiful garden that we can enjoy the rest of the summer in. It was definitely a win win situation.”
