Greenhive care home in Peckham held a community open day last Thursday when local children joined its residents for some cake decorating.

The Brayards Road home, run by Anchor, hosted pupils from St Mary Magdalene Church of England School who helped decorate cinnamon cupcakes.

There was also an art session, candle making, and free goodie bags, with spiced teas and hot chocolate while listing to live entertainment.

Manager Joel Bello said: “We know older people we work with enjoy the activities here.

“We held the autumn open day so that members of the local community could have a look around the home and hear for themselves how happy a place this is to live and about the great community spirit we have here.”

Iris Head, who has lived at Greenhive for three years, said: “Greenhive is a very pleasant place to live. I love my room as it looks onto the garden and I’m still able to visit the shops.

“I’m not surprised Greenhive is rated good by the regulator because the carers are lovely and very caring. It is the best place to live.”
