Barchester Hall Park Care Home, in Bulwell, was filled with flowers, cards and sweets in celebration of St Valentine’s Day.

General Manager, Jodie Rakhra, said: “We’ve all had a lovely day decorating the home and making gifts for each other and for our loved ones. Lots of our residents were able to see their loved ones either in person or via video call. We’ve had a whole range of treats and Valentine’s themed fun and we have enjoyed every moment of it!”

David Hough, a resident at Hall Park Care Home said: “It has been a lovely day. It was wonderful to see everyone go to so much effort to get involved with the day’s festivities. I was really enjoyed making Valentine’s cards, which I gave to my good friend Gail, who works in domestic here at the home. Gail is great, she deserves to get a card for all the hard work she does and she still finds the time to sit and talk with me and I fully enjoyed hearing Dee sing, she has such a beautiful voice and she gets everyone to sing along with her, which gets everyone in good spirits.”
