Carnival themed garden party at Woodpeckers Care Home

Garden party celebrates community fun

‘in the most delightful way’

Garden party continues Mary Poppins Carnival theme at Woodpeckers Care Home Brockenhurst

Residents from four of Colten Care's local care homes came together for a Mary Poppins-themed garden party complete with acting and music.

More than 100 guests enjoyed the singing, dancing and costume spectacular at Woodpeckers home in Brockenhurst, including residents from Court Lodge, Linden House and Belmore Lodge in Lymington. 

Spirit of Lymington Carnival continued...Garden party continues fun of Mary Poppins Carnival theme at Woodpeckers Care Home in Brockenhurst 2

The get-together at Woodpeckers was designed to continue the spirit of the Lymington Carnival held earlier in the summer, at which a 70-strong ‘Team Colten’ led the community parade. Residents and staff had chosen Mary Poppins as the theme of their float, spending weeks beforehand making dresses, kites, umbrellas, a merry-go-round horse and other props associated with the much-loved magical nanny.

The garden party showed the fun didn’t stop there, with the props re-used and songs and scenes from the musical performed by team members amid smiles all round.  Face-painting, stocks and a giant snakes and ladders game were among other activities laid on for families with children.

Among the guests were members of the Lions Club, organisers of the Carnival.

Court Lodge Home Manager Sam Reid said: “We had a fantastic party to continue our summer of fun. It was lovely to see so many residents, families and friends coming together and having a great time. A great deal of preparation went in to make it all happen but as Mary Poppins would say, ‘in every job that must be done, there is an element of fun’ - and we certainly found it!”
