Dark nights get Rogers House residents into crafting


As the dark evenings creep in, residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore have been enjoying some creative crafting with an autumn theme, painting pinecones.


Residents of the Drewery Drive care home added an autumnal twist to their regular craft club this week, painting pinecones in a variety of seasonal colours.


The creative residents enjoy a different craft activity each week and with the season now in full swing, an imaginative autumnal activity seemed like a great idea.


Armed with all of their orange, red and yellow paints, the keen artists spent a morning carefully hand painting a number of pinecones, to use as decoration for the upcoming autumn and winter seasons. As they painted pinecone after pinecone, they discussed their favourite memories and traditions from this time of year.


Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House said: “Our residents love their craft activities, before the pandemic, we had a lovely team of volunteers, who would come in and craft with the residents every week, but as they are now unable to come in, the activity staff have been doing their best to come up with innovative and inspiring creative ideas.


“They’ve done such a great job of keeping it fresh and interesting for the residents, week in week out, ensuring they don’t get bored and that there’s always something fun on offer.”
