Creative residents at Rogers House Residential Care Home got together in the garden on a sunny day, to make some bird feeders.

Residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore have been encouraging local birdlife to swoop in and say hello with their handmade feeders

Encouraging the local birds to swoop in for a snack, the bunch of creative residents from the Drewery Drive residential care home made the most of a sunny day and headed out in the garden to embrace their creative sides and support the local wildlife.

 

Using nuts, seeds and some tasty peanut butter, the residents worked together to make several feeders, which they hung throughout the garden, hopeful that some of their feathered friends might stop by.

 

Whilst making the feeders, the residents sipped cups of tea and nattered to one another about which birds they hoped to spot in the garden, over the coming weeks.

 

Lucy Dixon, home manager of Rogers House commented: “Lots of our residents love gardening, so it was a great idea to encourage a bit more birdlife within the home’s gardens.

 

“The residents had a lovely afternoon making the feeders and are looking forward to keeping their eyes peeled for new visitors!”
