Solihull care home plant trees to remember those who died during Covid pandemic

Sarah Mason 2nd Apr, 2022

CARE HOME residents across Solihull came together to mark the National Day of Reflection.

Staff and residents from Ardenlea Grove and Ardenlea Court in Solihull and The Priory in Shirley planted Salix integra willow trees in the care homes’ gardens to remember all those affected by the pandemic on the anniversary of the first national lockdown, March 23.

They also joined the nation in the national one-minute silence at noon.

Throughout the day there were visits from local councillors, reiki-inspired wellbeing sessions, and arts and crafts activities.

Jane Madden, regional director at Bupa Care Homes, said: “It has been a difficult couple of years and our home teams have worked hard to provide support for our residents and each other, so the newly planted willow trees offer space for us all to reflect and think about our loved ones.

“We’re looking forward to seeing them grow over the coming years as we look to the future.”
