Our staff and residents have had a lot of fun creating a gingerbread house recently, for another competition against our other 10 sister Canford Healthcare homes.

Here at Barty House we didn’t just make a house – we got really creative and added in snowmen, trees, a santa and lots of snow!

Over the last few days we’ve been kneading gingerbread dough, rolling, icing, piping and arranging the pieces. We’ve probably eaten as many sweets as we’ve used for decoration – but that’s all part of the fun. And it didn’t matter that we didn’t win – the judges said we were a strong runner up. All that matters is that it was a great team effort.

So a huge well done to residents and staff and now we’re all looking forward to tucking in!
