A Bromley care home has received an award for the quality of its grounds and gardens.
Queen Elizabeth House won Gardens and Grounds Award at a special ceremony held at The Oval, after competing against 19 other care homes managed by Greensleeves Care.
The home’s grounds have been transformed from an initially bare area into two warm, attractive and inviting spaces.
Residents are involved in the upkeep of the grounds, choosing plants from the garden centre and watering them.
The plants are chosen for their aroma, colour, shape and the role they play in the environment.
Beverley Simms-Dick, home manager at Queen Elizabeth House, said: “I am very happy that we have won this award, which reflects the hard work and dedication that has gone into creating such beautiful spaces for the enjoyment of the residents.”
