Residents bloom while transforming the garden at Skylark House

November 7th 2017

Residents and team members at Skylark House enjoyed a green-fingered day to prepare the gardens for spring.

Residents and the team at Skylark House care home on St Marks Lane were joined by members of the Horsham Town Community Partnership for a day to put their gardening skills to good use and get planting.

David Searle, Jane Apostolou, John Matthews, Mike Powell and Ron Bates from the Horsham Town Community Partnership helped plant over 300 blubs throughout the garden, which will create a fantastic display of colour for the residents to admire in the spring time. With all hands on deck, this was the perfect opportunity for green-fingered residents to pass on their tips for creating a beautiful garden.

Devendra Lallchand, home manager at Skylark House, said: “The residents here at Skylark House have been incredibly excited about the plans for the garden, so we were delighted to welcome the extra hands to help us complete the project.

“For many residents, gardening would have been a daily activity, with many taking great pride in the presentation of their garden, so it was fantastic to be able to give the residents the opportunity to use their green fingers.”

David Searle, chairman of the Horsham Town Community Partnership, added: “It has been a pleasure to be able to add a little colour to the residents’ lives, and we look forward to returning in the New Year to admire our work once it has bloomed.”
