Cannock Care Home Wows Judges in Gardening Competition

Littleton Lodge care home in Cannock has been named a finalist in care home provider Ideal Carehomes’ annual Gardens in Bloom competition for the second year running.

Gardens in Bloom aims to engage Ideal Carehomes’ teams, residents and the local community in creating wonderful outside spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Littleton Lodge was named the winner in the West Midlands region by the Gardens in Bloom judges, who were impressed by the residents’ coronation themed garden features.

Ideal Carehomes Regional Director and Gardens in Bloom judge, Lorraine Abbiss, said, ‘Littleton Lodge’s corgi planters and colourful coronation flags are fantastic, but the best part is that the residents were responsible for the designing.

‘All the residents, team members and people in the community who contributed to the garden have done an amazing job; they should be so proud of everything they have achieved.’

76-year-old resident, Ben Tillson, commented, ‘Lots of activities are organised for us residents, but the one that gives us the most pleasure is our beautiful gardens – both looking at them and giving them our own little touches.’

Soni Atwal, the Front of House Manager at Littleton Lodge, added, ‘Our residents are thrilled to be crowned the winners for the West Midlands region for a second year running!

‘We are really passionate about our beautiful gardens here at Littleton Lodge. We have worked very hard and once again, it’s paid off!’
