Coventry mayor judges Easter competition at Trinity Lodge care home
Residents of Trinity Lodge care home in Coventry have taken part in an Easter decorating competition.
To celebrate Easter this year, residents and care workers at Anchor’s Trinity Lodge Care home crafted handmade decorative Easter decorations, such as balloon arches and Easter bunnies. The residents & staff then had their handiwork judged by Lord mayor Councillor Ann Lucas of Coventry.
Anchor’s Trinity Lodge has had a long tradition of Easter activities and this year proved no exception with many entertaining events during the Easter Weekend, such as Easter egg hunt, and an Egg and spoon race. The big event, however, was the judging of the Easter decorations, with the Lord Mayor of Coventry, Councillor Ann Lucas appearing via video link to judge the competition.
The competition was fierce, but the eventual winner was St Michaels Unit with a beautifully decorated Lounge, dining room and corridor
Kim Slade, Home Manager at Anchor’s Trinity Lodge said:
A huge thank you to the Lord Mayor for judging our competition and a big congratulations to the winner! We’ve always enjoyed our traditional Easter fun and games here at Anchor’s Trinity Lodge Care Home and the residents always outdo themselves with their decorations and taking part in all the fun!
The winning resident, Mary Middleton, 85, said:
I’m absolutely chuffed we have won! It’s a huge honour, especially coming from the Mayor no less. Honestly there were so many beautiful decorations out there that I never thought ours would get a second glance! I’d like to say a big thank you to Councillor Ann Lucas for judging for us and to everyone at Anchor’s care home Trinity Lodge for looking after us so well.
Lord Mayor of Coventry, Councillor Ann Lucas, said:
The staff and residents have done such a wonderful job in decorating the units and making them look so bright and welcoming. The past year has been a very hard one for everyone, and those in our care homes have faced some very difficult times but have helped one another through and helped our city. Our caring staff have gone above and beyond to bring in new ways to keep residents entertained and in touch with their loved ones and they have been so well supported by residents and their families. The decorating competition is a marvellous way of celebrating that and welcoming the easing of restrictions and a return to a more normal way of life. Well done to everyone involved.
