Residents and Colleagues teamed up to celebrate the occasion by completing a host of activities on 12th February.

 

First up, there was flower arranging, as Residents got to work with some colourful blooms and Chinese dragon decorations. Then there was also a masterclass on making paper versions of the Asian conical hat with plaited ties.

 

Next, Colleagues supported the Residents to make Chinese-style peanut cookies in the afternoon’s baking session. Chef Jade then presented her awesome dragon cake, made from cupcakes topped with a stunning iced dragon. 

 

Finally, everyone gathered to enjoy a Chinese takeaway in the decorated dining room, complete with fortune cookies and chopsticks.

 

Activities Lead Jayne said a terrific time was had by all.

 

Jayne said: “We wanted to make sure the Residents had a wonderful Chinese New Year, full of great food and fun-filled celebrations.

 

“It was lovely to see them enjoying the craft activities, the baking session and then enjoying a delicious meal in the evening.

 

“Props to Chef Jade for the most amazing dragon cake. Everyone said how impressed they were with her work.”
