Care home entertainment proves a big hit with residents and guests

An Easter egg hunt in Oulton Broad provided free fun for the whole family on Easter Monday.   Lilac Lodge and Lavender Cottage care home in Gorleston Road welcomed visitors to participate in the community event, which took place from 1pm to 4pm.   Due to the strong winds of Storm Katie, the Easter egg hunt had to be moved inside the care home from the garden of Lavender Cottage.   But fun was still had by all, as youngsters hunted for hundreds of mini chocolate eggs.   Other entertainment included free face painting and music from popular local singer Gwyn.   Visitors and care home residents enjoyed close-up encounters with animals such as owls, tortoises, chicken and rabbits from local petting zoo Zoo-Tastic.   Stephen Pullinger, Head of Public Relations at the care home, which is run by Suffolk-based Kingsley Healthcare, said: “We had a delightful day despite the strong winds of Storm Katie.   “We had 100 people turn up, children enjoyed searching for Easter egg hunts hidden round the home.   “Zena Stotter, manager of the home, had to go buy extra Easter eggs it was so popular.”       Source: TheJournal Author: Stephen Pullinger
