Mountview in bloom thanks to Mountsorrel Brownies

Residents at Mountview care home in Rothley, operated by Ideal Carehomes, were excited to welcome their local Brownies group recently, to help out with an annual gardening competition.

Staff and residents at Mountview are currently taking part in the Ideal Carehomes’ Gardens in Bloom contest, which aims to engage teams, residents and the local community in creating wonderful outside spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Each member of the Brownies generously gifted a hand decorated potted plant to each resident, and then set out to fill the garden with various beautiful flowers.

Mountview resident and former primary school teacher, Ruth Buckingham said,

‘It brings back so many memories, and it’s lovely seeing the children coming in to help. They all looked so excited!’

Shireece Webster, the Brown Owl for the Mountsorrel Brownies, said the group of girls have been doing various activities around Mountsorrel and Rothley to help others in the community as part of a new ‘Kindness’ project. She said,

‘The girls really enjoyed getting stuck in and meeting some of the residents.  They are looking forward to returning and spending more time there in the future.’

Stacie Weaver, the Home Manager at Mountview, said the residents were ‘full of smiles’ during the visit and that they ‘love sitting in the gardens, especially now it’s blooming!’
