Hedon Community Events

Recently, staff and residents at Magdalen have enjoyed taking part in community events in the area. These have included Open Gardens, the Scarecrow Competition, Hedfest and Roos Summer Show. 

Open Gardens and Scarecrow Competition

We enjoy inviting visitors into our home and Hedon Open Gardens is a perfect opportunity for this. We welcomed the visitors, showed them around our beautiful gardens and offered everyone a drink. During this time, we also held a raffle and tombola and raised £205 for the residents fund!

This year, we decided to go with an Alice in Wonderland theme for our scarecrows. Everyone enjoyed making them and we were pleased with the results. Our hard work paid off and we received 1st place for our scarecrows, for the second year running! Well done to all those involved.

 

Hedfest Parade

We were invited to take part in Hedfest again this year. We chose a 'Top Gun' theme and had great fun turning the wheelchairs into fighter jets! Family, friends, residents and staff took part in the parade, and enjoyed walking round Hedon in the sun. 

 

Roos Show

Our flower arranging group took part in Roos Summer Show again this year. Well done to everyone who entered and to Jean and Dorothy, who both won prizes in their flower arranging category. 

The gardening club have enjoyed growing flowers and vegetables this year. As we had such a wide range of good quality vegetables and flowers, we entered these in the show for the first time. We had several winning entries in these classes, including 7 pods of peas, 1 head of broccoli and 6 dahlias. Well done to everyone who helped out in the gardens.
