Great British Bake Off inspires residents at Canterbury care home


pat-enjoyed-baking-tcedab4The smell of freshly baked treats filled the corridors of the Canterbury care home, as the residents turned their hand to making a delicious batch of pasties.


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.

“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.
