Residents at Harry Priestley House in Thorne have been planting the flowers in preparation for the growing season.

One resident David Jepson, who is keen gardener, said: “Gardening is one of my favourite activities. Our home has a lovely spacious garden and I’m looking forward to spending more time outdoors as the weather gets brighter and warmer.”

Anne Stobart, home manager at Harry Priestley House, said: “It was such a delight to receive the flowers from the schoolchildren of Mashland Primary School. It lifted our residents’ spirits up. We are looking forward to opening our Home up to more activities with the community when it is safe to do so.”
