Greenhill Manor residents visit Bristol Balloon Fiesta

Residents at Greenhill Manor, our award-winning care home in Merthyr Tydfil, recently took a trip to the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta to get a close-up view of the hot air balloons.

The fiesta, which is the largest of its kind in Europe, saw hot air balloons from all over the world congregate for the special event.

As well as the colourful display, there was an array of craft and food stalls where the residents were able to sample a range of food and drink, from cider to chocolate cheese!

Lifestyles Team Leader at Greenhill Manor, Amanda Francis said: “We all had a lovely day in Bristol for the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. Even though the weather wasn’t great, we still had a lovely time!

“It is such a nice feeling seeing the residents enjoying themselves outside of the home.”

Resident at Greenhill Manor, Brian Wilson, 92, said: “It was so nice to be back in Bristol, which is where I am originally from. The size of those balloons was incredible and I’m glad I went. The company was great too!”
