Hallmark in Bloom: This year’s winners

We are proud to announce the winners of Hallmark in Bloom, our company-wide gardening competition.

All of our homes across England and Wales have worked extremely hard to improve the quality of their gardens and demonstrate strong evidence of resident and community engagement.

This year’s event saw great improvement on last year, and we will continue to work closely with Thrive in order to take our gardens to the next level.

Damien Newman, Training, Education and Consultancy Manager for Thrive said:

“Once again the standard of gardens and use of the space for resident’s benefit has improved across Hallmark Care Homes. There are now many examples of excellence in the use of nature and gardens for therapeutic value. All homes can be very proud in being at the top of the industry in the use of gardens.”
