Newborn lambs brighten elderly residents’ day

LEAPING lambs brought smiles to the faces of elderly visitors, from Queens Meadow Care Home, during a trip to Saltholme Nature Reserve.

The reserve’s newest arrivals have been drawing in the crowds, including residents from care homes in Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees.

Queens Meadow Care Home and Ingleby Care Home, both operated by the Hill Care Group, took their residents on a day-trip to the popular tourist attraction.

They were delighted to see the newborn lambs, some as young as three days, during their visit. 

Although Lambing Live took place between 30th March and 15th April this year, some of the reserve’s sheep are still giving birth in the lambing shed.

Kirsty Walsh, activities coordinator for Ingleby Care Home, on Lamb Lane, in Ingleby Barwick, said:Queens Meadow

“Even though it was a windy day, the residents loved being out in the fresh air, seeing the baby lambs chasing their mums and also all kinds of different birds. After visiting the lambing shed, many of the residents said they wanted to take the lambs home, as they’re so cute. We’ll definitely be back to see how they’ve grown in future.”

Queens MeadowDebbie Wilkes, activities coordinator for Queens Meadow Care Home, on Stockton Road, in Hartlepool, said: “

Saltholme Nature Reserve is very close to our care home so we take regular trips to see the birds and enjoy lunch in the café. We are great supporters of the reserve and everyone loves visiting – especially at lambing time. The residents thoroughly enjoyed seeing the babies and everyone left with big smiles.”
