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: “It was, as ever, a pleasure to be involved in Hallmark in Bloom. I always receive such a warm welcome and it’s lovely to see so many familiar faces and new enthusiastic team members.
“The standard of gardening and using gardens for health and wellbeing across the homes, continues to get better and better. Amongst the homes, there are outstanding examples of how gardens can become an extension of care home life and enhance the wellbeing and health of the people you care for.”
