Residents of a care home had a warm welcome to spring with the help of a few furry friends.

Chater Lodge Care Home in Ketton received a visit on Saturday (April 9) by The Phoenix Children’s Foundation which brought lambs.

The lambs were wearing nappies and residents had the opportunity to bottle-feed and stroke them.

Zoe Postgate, manager at Ketton Care Home, said: “The lambs were really interactive and it was a lovely morning.”

This event normally occurs annually but has not been able to go ahead for the last two due to the pandemic.

Residents and staff have been invited to have a picnic at the farm which hosts peacocks, cows and more.

“The residents enjoyed every moment,” said Zoe. “It is something a little different to do, and a lot of our residents’ were farmers so it is bringing their life memories back to them.”

Three lambs and a sheepdog named Chester attended and they were able to visit residents in their rooms.
