I’ve spent a very lovely day at Beaudesert Care Farm near Rugeley today. They run projects that support people who live with dementia, mental health illnesses and their carers. I’ve run a print workshop for them in the past but today was a treat of a day out for me to enjoy good company, make some hot cross buns and say hello to the animals.
We started the morning by making needing bread for our buns, followed by a walk around the farm to visit the welsh white cows and the boer goats, unfortunately the weather was closing in so we cut the tour short as some of the participants were getting cold.
Back in to homemade soup and rolls with lots of laughter, followed by homemade cake. Possibly one of the simplest but most delicious lunches I’ve had in a long time.
The afternoon session consisted of some easter crafts complete with mini chocolate eggs. When asked if she’d had a nice time, one elderly lady exclaimed “it’s overwhelming! I’ve had a great time” and to be honest, so had I.
