The Tree of Hulcott

Residents at Hulcott recently got all crafty in one of our popular Arts and Crafts sessions run by Pip, our Activities Coordinator.

The residents were asked to make a picture of a tree with some phrases as to life at Hulcott.

Sheila and Richard (as pictured) were proud to show off their ‘Tree of Hulcott’ which is a glittering picture with words written by the residents of how they feel about life here.

They wrote phrases such as

“nice place to be”

“always wear a smile”

“love your friends”

“have fun and enjoy your time”

Arts and Crafts is a really popular activity here at Hulcott as it is open to all level of mobility including those with low vision, limited dexterity, for example, as well as some of our more active residents. We find it really encourages a sense of community by bringing them all together for a chat over their drawing boards encouraging friendships, contributes to their self-esteem and develops social interaction.

Margaret Smart, Home Manager said:

“They all thoroughly enjoy this activity as it fosters a real sense of accomplishment and positive thinking as shown by the phrases they used and which I was very pleased to read.”

They are all looking forward to their next session and we can’t wait to see what they create next.
