RESIDENTS and staff at a Heathfield care home were thrilled with the results of the local Girl Guides’ first community project this week.

Everyone at Heffle Court watched on with enthusiasm as the seaside-themed courtyard garden project took shape. The girls, aged 10-16, have been getting their hands dirty for several weeks to create a colourful and tidy area.

The group had been busy planning and making creative items to decorate the courtyard garden at a care home for elderly people with dementia. Guides and leaders went to Heffle Court to paint, collected shells, cleared, weeded, planted and finished the project. Then they joined residents for an ice cream and group singalong.
