Petting zoo is a great present for Ashcroft!

Residents at Ashcroft Care Home in Chesterfield enjoyed an afternoon at the zoo from the comfort of the home lounge, thanks to a novel idea from two relatives!

Mandy and Val, daughters of resident Ernest Smith, were lost for ideas of what to give their dad for Christmas, and after much thought came up with the fantastic idea of bringing a petting zoo to Ashcroft, to entertain not only to their dad, but to his fellow residents too. 

It was a wonderful afternoon and the array of little creatures were a big hit with residents and staff too!

Home Manager Helen Baston said:

"On behalf of our residents and my colleagues here at Ashcroft, we would like to say a massive thank you to Ernest and his daughters for a wonderful afternoon, which was a fun and different experience for everyone who took part."
