Gardening at Parkview Care Home

An afternoon of gardening at Parkview Care Home in Bexleyheath

On Wednesday the 4th May landscaping company Burley’s arrived with a truck full of plants at Parkview care home to be planted in the new raised flower beds that have recently been installed. The garden at Parkview has undertaken a mini makeover to make the area more appealing for residents to want to get involved with gardening and outdoor activities.

Parkview care home is currently going through a refurbishment inside and out with works due to complete at the end of May. Works included updating the garden which DCB Kent have worked hard with achieving, now all that was left to do was add the finishing touches to the garden, plants!

With the help of Darren the site manager from DCB Kent, Mr Ranagiotis from Burley Landscapers and care staff from Parkview Care Home, residents spent the afternoon elbows deep in compost planting the new plants.

You can see from the photos it was very much all hands on deck on this glorious sunny day. The residents thoroughly enjoyed themselves which we all feel will help encourage others who are not so keen on gardening to want to take part in the garden in the future. I’d like to thank the contractors who helped with the gardening and made the day such a fun afternoon. A big thank you and well done also to our residents Rose, Joan, Pat, Jan, Dawn, Mary, Maureen, Thelma, Barbara and Eileen who didn’t stop all afternoon with planting!’Jo Thompson, Activities Coordinator
