A popular activity at Nettlestead Care Home is baking, and particular cup-cakes, although there is some suspicion that it was not just for the pleasure of cooking.
Everyone enjoys fresh-cut flowers but the residents of Nettlestead Care Home enjoy going one-stage further and doing their own flower arranging.
