Primrose Croft Care Home Residents In Cambridge Win NAPA Hollywood Prize

Primrose Croft Care Home in Cambridge entered a National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) competition where Care Homes were invited to make a sign for their homes using any type of materials.

Residents had a brainstorming session and agreed that Primrose Croft is all about the people that live and work there, agreeing that the sign must include residents and staff, so it was obvious to have the letters for Primrose Croft shaped using the people that are the glue to Primrose Croft.

In a fun filled day getting everyone positioned into the right shape it was very amusing especially for the spectators.

Once Pearl, Regional Lifestyle & Wellbeing Lead, had taken the pictures she printed them off in a drawing effect that everyone thought looked amazing. The sign was then placed outside so everyone can see it when they arrive at Primrose Croft.

In true Hollywood style Rachel, Home Manager, arranged a special opening day where the Mayor of Cambridge Cllr Russ McPherson, cut the ribbon for their new unique sign. The Major thought it was very creative, and residents enjoyed telling him how much fun it was to do. Staff and residents enjoyed a barbecue with KJ Entertainment singing.

Everyone at Primrose Croft really enjoyed the day they were involved in creating their exceptional sign, saying, “how marvellous it is to have won.” Especially when they heard they had been up against many competitors and the judges were unanimous that Primrose Croft should be the winner.

Primrose Croft are now looking forward to receiving a prize which is a Hollywood themed party pack.
