Residents ‘barge’ to their day out

Residents and staff from Birch Green Care Home have been enjoying the glorious weather with a special day out on a barge trip.


‘The Rose of Parbold’ barge took our ladies and gentlemen up and down the canal while everyone sat with their sunglasses on enjoying the sunshine. Residents fed the ducks who soon got wise to the bread and before everyone knew it, the barge had a personal escort.


While on the barge, residents and staff enjoyed a good old sing-along to their favourite tunes with plenty of walkers on the towpath joining in along the way.


It was great to see everyone enjoying the sunshine and having fun and our next barge trip on The Rose of Parbold has already been booked!
