Setting The Community Caterpillar At Derby Care Home

Colleagues and Residents at HC One’s Shelton Lock care home have been making the final touches to their community caterpillar project.

During lockdown the Residents of the Derby care home have been busy painting stones to form the Shelton Lock Community Caterpillar.

Stones were painted by children and adults in the community throughout the pandemic and put along the footpath to the local park.

Derby Council were approached, and funding was granted to make the caterpillar stones a feature for the local community.

The Residents and staff at Shelton Lock decided they would join in and painted some pebbles for the Caterpillar they wanted to create out of them.

Home manager Nicola Millar, and wellbeing coordinator Jayne Simpson, were asked if they would be able to join in with the setting of the caterpillar.

Both went along for the day and helped the community to place stones including their own Shelton Lock stones. They said ‘it was lovely to be involved in a community project such as this.”
