Cartoonist Tony Husband has created a 9ft mural for residents at Cadogan Court in Exeter. Well known for his cartoons in newspapers and magazines including Private Eye, Punch and The Times, Tony visited the Home on Thursday 10 May with dementia activist Gina Awad who supported the event. He spent the day drawing different focal points with the help of residents, which he later created into a large mural in the Home’s reception.
Joy Wilkinson, a resident at Cadogan Court in Exeter, has been reunited with a recording from her husband Eric, an RAF serviceman, whilst he was serving in India during the Second World War. The message was found on an old record by a member of the public in Salisbury during a clear out and was played on BBC’s The One Show, to help reunite the recording with its rightful owner.
Residents at The Tithebarn in Liverpool were inspired by the recent warmer weather to create a fragrant herb garden in the Home's grounds. Reusing an old steamer from the Home's kitchen, residents planted a variety of herbs such as basil, coriander, sage and chives, as well as strawberry plants.
