As the leaves begin to change colour and the nights start to draw in, it’s clear that the cosy Autumn season is quickly approaching. That means it’s time to rummage for those warm blankets, knitted jumpers, and of course, those baking trays. Not only is it time for cosying up by the fire, but it’s also time for The Great British Bake Off to begin!
Every single year, The Great British Bake Off inspires people across the country to get back into the kitchen and really cook up a storm. From cakes and desserts to pies and pastries, everyone can get involved and bake something to be proud of. That’s why this year, to really get our residents in the spirit, we decided to host our very own Haling Park Bake Off.
Our residents had a fantastic time baking their very own sweet treats, and with a little bit of help from our incredible care team, they had so much fun decorating their edible masterpieces with icing, sprinkles and sweeties. This baking session gave our residents the opportunity to show off their more competitive sides, with each floor of Haling Park going head-to-head for the chance to be crowned Best Baker.
In the end, it was safe to assume that all floors were winners in their own right, with some absolutely amazing cakes being made. Afterwards, our residents were welcomed to ‘judge’ their bakes for themselves in the communal dining space.
As we provide a weekly activities programme here at Haling Park, our residents have countless opportunities to take part in a wide variety of activities, events and excursions throughout their stay with us. From visiting a local tourist attraction to taking part in arts and crafts sessions, there truly is never a dull moment.
