The people we support at Cedar Vale specialist autism hospital in East Bridgford have enjoyed getting crafty to celebrate Valentine’s Day and the improving spring weather.
Kath Daws, Senior Support Worker, has been supporting people at Cedar Vale to engage in activities, particularly arts and crafts. Lately she has supported people to create lots of wonderful paper crafts. Sparkly pink and red hearts filled the service as people created love hearts with paint and lots of glitter!
People were also inspired by the improving weather as we edge towards spring. Everyone enjoyed collecting the pine cones from below the beautiful cedar tree within the grounds, which Cedar Vale is named after.
They used the cones to make these brilliant yellow chicks, who will stay up until Easter. The chicks have been proudly displayed in the Cedar Vale entrance hall underneath the seasonal tree they have decorated for St Patrick’s Day.
Underneath the tree is the newest addition to the crafted displays around Cedar Vale – a beautiful bunch of paper daffodils. Kath supported people to work together to create this bunch of flowers within a traditional Welsh hat to display them in for St David’s Day. Everyone at Cedar Vale thinks the display is brilliant and really brightens up the entrance hall.
