Galgorm Care Home entered the Mid and East Antrim in Bloom Community Competition and were thrilled to be awarded runner-up in the business category.
We decided it would be lovely to give our garden a makeover and as our residents love gardening, they were all eager to get involved. This was the perfect activity during lockdown as it was fantastic to have a project to focus on and it was a great way to enjoy the warm weather and it was therapeutic for all of us.
We were very thankful for local businesses and family members donating some lovely plants and spring bulbs. Our residents did a fantastic job at planting them and the plants really transformed our garden. We also painted the table to give our garden a lovely pop of colour.
Everyone at Galgorm were overjoyed because our courtyard looks fantastic! It’s great having a safe and relaxing place for our residents and they loved being out in the garden during the summer season. Many of our residents enjoyed watering our plants and making sure our garden continues to look lovely.
Being awarded runner-up was a fantastic acknowledgement of the brilliant job our residents and team did with our garden. Everyone at Galgorm are extremely proud of our achievement, it was the cherry on top of a really enjoyable project.
Congratulations Galgorm on your fantastic award!
