James Terry Court prepares for Easter with creative workshop

14 March 2016

Easter preparations have started at James Terry Court in South Croydon with a creative Easter workshop. Residents created colourful eggs for the annual Easter egg roll at the Home.

Activities Coordinator Carol Roberts said: "Our residents diligently worked on making Easter eggs for the competition by covering boiled eggs with colourful paper. When the paper is dry it will fall off and leave a lovely pattern on the eggs."

After the activity residents had a lovely chat and enjoyed a cup of coffee or tea. Resident Marjorie shared some anecdotes from her youth and said: "My children live far away and my son offered me to come and stay with them when he moved with his family but I said I am so happy here at the Home and want to stay. I like living at James Terry Court where I am well looked after and my son can visit me."

The Home offers a range of creative and art-based activities that are very popular among residents and support their health and wellbeing. Resident Peter, who joins in most of the activities, is a devoted painter and the activity room's walls are covered in his beautiful artworks, such as drawings of flowers and landscapes.
