Celebrating the Year of the Pig – Chinese New Year

On 5th February, we celebrated the Chinese New Year here at Bourne Wood Manor. Our kitchen team cooked a Chinese inspired meal and we made Chinese cherry blossoms out of twigs and paper, which now decorate our bistro area. The residents who attended particularly enjoyed the paper craft sessions in the afternoon and some of the residents taught staff about the traditions of Chinese New Year as they had lived in the country in their earlier years. It was a very enjoyable and informative afternoon for all involved.
