We had a very special planting of a ‘Tree of Hope’ to celebrate Gardener’s Day last month. The planting was carried out by members of the Tree of Hope Team Noeleen and Niall Fulham. The tree was planted with a beautiful ceremony of poems, prayers and songs all about hope for the future. When it was placed in the ground some residents and staff then helped fill soil in around it. It was then decorated with ribbons and flowers and a beautiful plaque. We are sure that this tree will bring us and many to follow us, hope for the future. We then went inside to where John Bruton was waiting to entertain us with his musical talent. We really enjoyed his range of songs and spent an hour happily singing along. The afternoon surely flew by!
