A TRIP TO COOLINGS GREEN GARDEN CENTRE

01 November 2016

Residents from Elmwood recently visited Coolings Green Garden Centre to choose some new finned friends for the home’s fish tank. Everyone was extremely excited to see the various fish in the store and they found the environment very therapeutic.

“Before leaving we also enjoyed some refreshments at the centre’s café”, added Angelin Selvanathan, Activity Carer. “When we returned to Elmwood the residents surrounded the fish tank to welcome the new arrivals into their new home. Since then we have also welcomed little fish babies!”
