Recycling is a massively important to our team and residents here at Hallgarth Care Home and we have recently been focusing our efforts on getting creative while recycling. Our residents have been working on art pieces for the garden with the theme of saving the planet through recycling. We have made flowers and bird feeders from plastic bottles and from plastic lids collected by residents, staff, family and friends of Hallgarth.
Our newest piece represents the protection of birds, it depicts a swan in natural habitat. One of our lovely residents, Margaret, said “I have enjoyed taking part in our art club recycle projects over the summer. I had the pleasure of sticking the last of the blue lids on the swan picture. It’s just like putting the last piece in a jigsaw it all then comes together, but although you say it’s a swan I think it looks more like an ostrich! But it’s very good whatever it is. Well done to everyone who took part, in us recycle garden art projects, it’s surprising what can be done with a few used canvases, plastic bottles, lids and a bit of imagination. It just goes to show that if everyone does a little it all adds up to a lot, and we together can make our planet a better place to live for everyone. And judging by what we made a more joyfully decorated colourful world too.”
