Cherry Blossom Care Home Welcomes the Peterborough Fire Brigade

Peterborough fire brigade and Cherry Blossom residents

As Glad to Care Week continues at our Cherry Blossom Care Home in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, we were delighted to welcome some true local heroes – the Peterborough Fire Brigade! This week is all about celebrating and showing appreciation for the incredible people who dedicate themselves to caring for others, and the fire brigade certainly fits the bill.

A Day of Fun and Learning

The firefighters arrived with a fire engine in tow, much to the excitement of the residents. They spent the afternoon engaging with everyone, sharing stories about their work and demonstrating some of their equipment. Residents were particularly fascinated by the hoses and the fire truck's siren (used sparingly, of course!).

More Than Just Fire Safety

The visit wasn't just about fire safety education (although some important tips were shared!). It was a fantastic opportunity for residents and firefighters to connect and share a few laughs. The atmosphere was filled with warmth and camaraderie, as everyone enjoyed getting to know each other better.

Gratitude for Our Everyday Heroes

The residents at Cherry Blossom were incredibly grateful for the time the firefighters spent with them. It was a heartwarming reminder of the dedication and selflessness of these vital service men and women who risk their lives to keep our communities safe.

The visit from the Peterborough Fire Brigade was a highlight of Glad to Care Week at Cherry Blossom. It provided a fun and engaging experience for the residents, while also fostering a sense of appreciation for the incredible work these everyday heroes perform.
