Guests at the Craddock Road care home were welcomed with the scent of freshly baked pasties last week, when residents decided to bake a batch of tasty pasties from scratch.
The residents used a variety of fillings, including ham, cheese, tomato and bacon along with puff pastry, to whip up a large batch of pasties, which everyone later enjoyed with a cup of tea.
Bev Furr, activity coordinator at Connors House, commented: “Baking activities always go down very well with the residents, as they can not only enjoy making the treats, they can enjoy eating them too!
“A couple of the residents who got involved with the activity also used to be bakers, so they loved reminiscing about their younger days and showing the others their skills.”
Residents of Connors House work with Bev to create a diverse and enjoyable calendar of activity and events, which all residents can get involved with. Recent activities include scrapbooking, hand and face massages and gardening sessions.
