A hiss-toric afternoon! Community joins Chester care home for ultimate summer festival

Home news

A care home in Chester hit the right note when it welcomed the local community to join them for a very special event.

The team at Care UK’s Deewater Grange, on Chester Road, were joined by the people of Chester for their summer festival.

With a special visit from Boo’s Mobile Zoo, residents and guests welcomed a host of furry friends into the home, including meerkats, tortoises, lizards and even skunks – getting to meet them up close and learn more about the friendly creatures.

Younger visitors enjoyed getting into the cowboy spirit with pony rides, and there was also a bouncy castle plus a face painter on hand.

The fun-filled festival formed part of Deewater Grange’s Care Home Open Week celebrations, a national initiative that encourages care homes to open their doors and showcase what life in a care home is really like.

Ellen Reynolds, aged a resident at Deewater Grange, said: “I thought the whole day was absolutely marvellous and the team put on a wonderful show for us all. My favourite part of the day was seeing all the families queueing up for the pony rides and their jolly faces. It made me wish I was small enough to ride one myself!”

Sally Cooper, Home Manager at Deewater Grange, said: We were delighted to welcome the community to our summer festival to party the afternoon away. 

“Our special event offered a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with the community and show them what life at Deewater Grange is all about. We loved giving everyone a chance to showcase their best moves at our summer festival – as well as welcoming creatures big and small into the home.

“We’re already planning our next summer event so keep your eyes peeled – it’s set to be a summer to remember!”
