A CARE home in Clevedon has hosted a series of Harvest Festival events.

Poets Mews Care Home, which is part of Avery Healthcare, can be found on Cherry Avenue.

Staff and residents took part in a range of activities throughout September and October, including trivia about the Harvest Festival, a harvest-themed quiz, craft workshops where residents made wool dolls instead of corn dolls, and traditional games.

Residents were also able to enjoy a seasonal-themed menu.

To conclude their festivities, staff at the home donated 39.6kg worth of non-perishable goods to the Clevedon District Foodbank.

Kelly Croxton, food bank manager, said: “We are very grateful to Poets Mews Care Home residents, staff and their families for their generous donations. All your donations will make a big difference to many families that are struggling at the moment.”

Care home manager, Julie Bees, added: “Harvest Festival is a special occasion that celebrates the bounty of the harvest season and the importance of community.

"At Poets Mews Care Home, we believe it is important to create opportunities for our residents to come together and celebrate the changing seasons and continue to support their local community as they always would have.”
