Scarecrow Competition To kick off Autumn festivities, Hudson Healthcare ran an inter-Home scarecrow competition in the month of October! All Homes were delighted to get involved and took this as an opportunity to collaborate with residents to produce creative takes on scarecrows. There were two themes, one being superhero scarecrows and the other scarecrows ‘at work,’ which gave the Homes a chance to be as creative as possible. The Homes collaborated with different external organisations, from local farmers, to nursery children and many more. Thank you for all those who helped execute this…we could not have done it without you! A big congratulations to Pitkerro who won the competition! Have a look at the fabulous scarecrows that were made across the Homes below 😊 Pitkerro - Spiderman & Nurse Sandiacre - Superman & Robin Hood Lornebank - Spiderman & Gordon Ramsay Harbour - Fireman & an Anchor-man

As people ate the harpist played on, finishing with the Doris Day song ‘Que sera, sera’”. You can read his full thoughts on the day here. Karen Goodwin, daughter of our resident Patricia, added “she (Patricia) loved the harp music…thanks for letting us join in on the day.”

Scarecrow Competition In the run-up to Halloween and as part of our Autumn festivities, Hudson Healthcare ran an inter-Home scarecrow competition in the month of October! We here at Sandiacre Court were delighted to get involved and wanted it to be as collaborative a project as possible. Our idea, based around a superhero theme and chosen by our residents, was to make two scarecrows. One scarecrow would be Superman, a classic hero, and one would be Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest who stole from the rich and gave to the poor, being an icon of Nottinghamshire! Our final product was a great collaborative effort that wowed residents, staff and relatives! This was a fantastic experience for all involved and we are incredibly proud and grateful to all who helped. We would like to extend our congratulations to the winning Home, Pitkerro Care Centre, and watch out for next year’s competition.
