Residents and staff at MHA Waterside care home in Wednesfield, Wolverhampton have embraced British Pie Week by taking part in a variety of pie-themed activities.
Residents enjoyed a mealtime experience in the Café Area and were served with a “Bostin” Cottage Pie and a Delicious Apple Lattice for dessert, washed down with a Shandy, a glass of Sherry or a glass of Bubbly wine.
The home provides a safe and caring environment for up to 60 people living with dementia.
After Lunch all were entertained by our fabulous singer Damien, for a good old sing a long and a Jive.
Helen ‘May’ Barnett aged 97, talked about when she was a young mother and how she used to bake a Sweet Rhubarb Pie, every Thursday or Friday ready for the weekend.
May grew her own Rhubarb in her garden along with other vegetables and fruit. She served her pies with “whatever her children wanted”
Caroline Binnersley, Home Manager of MHA Waterside said: “It was so lovely to watch our residents all get together and enjoy a Pietastic meal.
Our kitchen team Andrew Vernon, Lisa Wood and Esther Dosso worked together to make the pies and we all really enjoyed it.
MHA care homes from across the UK have been joining in with the national celebrations, which are held during the first week of March each year.
The charity care provider’s mottos for the week are ‘Live Life, Eat Pie’ and ‘Happiness is Home-made.’
