A lucky Essex care home with no cases of Covid-19 during the whole of the pandemic wants to bring a smile to the local community by launching a garden project.
The Oaks in Great Bentley plans to paint its donated boat, and plant flowers with an inspirational quote next to each one so that it can spread a little happiness to those that walk past.
Activities leader at The Oaks Jodie Smith said: "We haven't had any Covid thank goodness.
"The whole team has really ensured we have stuck to the strictest guidance."
She added, on the project: "The residents are keen to get the ‘inspirational boat’ started so that they can bring smiles to everyone’s faces.
