The Winner of Amica Care Trust Garden Competition 2020 is....

A big thank you to everyone for your outstanding efforts in creating the most colourful gardens this year, John and I had the most enjoyable two days and were extremely impressed by the high standard, which made our job very difficult.

It gives me great pleasure to announce the overall winner  Exmouth House

The creation of colour and variety of plants were fantastic, residents played a huge part in developing the garden and all plants were donated by the local community.

Signature House and The Orchards were both runners up; again great use of colour in the garden.

Well done to The Orchards for their Wizard of Oz ‘over the rainbow’ pantomime.

I hope you will join me in congratulating Exmouth House and give yourselves a well-deserved congratulations for creating such joyful spaces.

Photos of the winning garden and all the other participants will be on here soon!

St John's Court  'Whodunnit?' Detective Murder Mystery Day Image

St John's Court 'Whodunnit?' Detective Murder Mystery Day

St Johns was transformed to the year of 1929, New Years Eve.

Everyone dressed the part to enjoy card games including poker, an array of alcoholic beverages prior to counting down to the new year.

As soon as midnight struck, the murder mystery commenced, who did it……..?

 

Residents and staff members teamed up to solve the many riddles which then led on to the hunting of the clues around the home.

After interrogating the witnesses and being able to ask the characters questions, it was concluded…..

 

‘It was Edgar, in the lounge, that used the broken glass bottle to kill Felix Fotano the club owner!!! Why? Because Felix was funding Edgar’s film and pulled out of funding as Edgar was having an affair with Edith, Felix’s wife!’
