Care home residents in Peckham have been getting creative with arts and crafts to keep their spirits up during the lockdown, writes Simon Throssell…

Elderly residents at Waterside Care Home on Sumner Road are proving that age is just a number by painting watercolours, playing cards and even dancing to the Macarena.

The activities have been a great way for residents to spend time while locked down.

Residents have also been introduced to modern technology as staff have shown them the ‘magic’ of Snapchat filters.

Staff and residents decorated pancakes with Nutella, honey and marshmallows on Shrove Tuesday.

On Valentines Day, they sent each other cards with hand-painted love hearts on the front.

Residents have also been drawing bright yellow and green daffodils to celebrate the coming of spring.
