Creative caps on to celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day

Worcester Editorial 20th Jan, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

THERE were sweet treats galore at a Worcester care home when residents put on their creative caps to celebrate the birth of one of the country’s best known children’s authors.

Residents at Regent Residential Care Home in St John’s decorated bear shaped biscuits on Friday (January 17) to mark the birth of Winnie the Pooh’s creator AA Milne on January 18, 1882.

Bridie Gray, the home’s activities leader, said: “Everybody loves Winnie the Pooh – it is a book that our residents, their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and all the generations grew up with.

“We thought what better way to celebrate this national treasure than to create some sweet treats for everyone to enjoy.”

Other activities on the day included art sessions where residents drew famous characters including Eeyore, Tigger Piglet and the honey-loving cuddly bear himself.

Activities assistant, Fay Begum, added: “It was a lovely day and our residents really enjoyed taking part – especially eating their biscuits after they had decorated them.

“It was a great activity for reminiscence, bringing back fond memories of when our residents would read Winnie the Pooh to their own children and grandchildren.”
