We were delighted to welcome members of Uttoxeter Walking Club recently, to stop by for tea and cake on one of their planned walks.
We’re lucky to enjoy a beautiful setting and we notice walkers coming close to the home on a regular basis. So we invited the Uttoxeter group to come to have some refreshments that would keep them going on their route along the Limestone Way.
And they were delighted to accept.
As well as giving the walkers a chance to refuel, it was an opportunity for our residents to chat to new people and talk about the joys of walking.
Maureen in particular was a keen rambler. She still enjoys a turn around the JCB lake and our gardens, but longer distances are a little beyond her now.
She loved talking to the walkers and posed for photographs out on our terrace overlooking the surrounding countryside.
There was even a four-legged rambler who joined in, and our residents are always thrilled to see canine company!
“We’re a key part of our community,” said home manager, Matthew Whitfield.
“As well as us going out into the local area we welcome people in.
“New faces and new experiences are really stimulating for our residents and we hope we added something to the ramblers’ walk, too.
