Just flipping good fun as Dorset care home hosts pancake party

Flipping good time: Chef Donna Singleton and resident Geoffrey Anderson watch cubs Lewis and Jasper toss their pancakes at Colten Care’s Newstone House home.

Two generations had a flipping good time when a North Dorset care home hosted a pancake party.

Five cubs from Sturminster Newton Scout Group helped whisk up some delicious pancakes for residents at Colten Care’s Newstone House.

Under the expert guidance of the home’s chef Donna Singleton, the youngsters, aged between eight and ten years, prepared the batter.

They then tucked into the finished pancakes as a reward for their hard work.

The visit was part of Colten Care’s ‘Closing The Gap’ initiative which sees the family-owned company’s homes build close community links with schools and youth groups..

Tanya Mason-Flynn, Cub Scout Leader, said: “The cubs had a lovely time both making, and eating, the pancakes.

“This is our second visit in two days as they also took part in a ‘show and tell’ session with residents. Both visits can count towards their ‘Our World Challenge’ badge.”

Imogen Deacon from the Newstone House companionship team said: “The pancake party was a great success and enjoyed by both the cubs and our residents.

“It was lovely to welcome the cubs to our home and we look forward to many return visits in the future.”
