Winners of Boutique Care Homes Spring Poetry and Easter Bonnet Competitions!

Spring has sprung, and the residents and team members at Boutique Care Homes have really embraced the season's spirit, showcasing their creativity and passion through the our Spring Poetry Competition and the Easter Bonnet Design Competition.

We were blown away by the incredible entries we received for both Easter Bonnets, which were imaginative, beautiful and uplifting. The Spring Poems were equally creative, personal and told unique stories, which incorporated our core values of Belonging, Openness, United, Trust, Involvement, Quality, Uniqueness, and Embrace.

After much deliberation, the judges finally decided on the winners and runners up of the competitions. Here are the results:

Boutique Poetry Competition:
  • Winner: “Spring Everyday” by Jean Aves at Brampton Manor
  • Runner-up: Chartwell House Poetry Club

Jean Aves from Brampton Manor impressed the judges with her beautiful poem, “Spring Everyday,” which captured the essence of the season and our core values. The judges felt that the poem was a true testament to the creativity and talent of our residents and team members. The Chartwell House Poetry Club’s submission, was a collective effort that showcased the residents’ and team members’ collaboration and involvement in the competition.

Easter Bonnet Design Competition:
  • Winner: Sheila at The Burlington for her Easter Chick Bonnet
  • Runner-up: Audrey at The Burlington for her Feather and Eggs Bonnet

Sheila’s eggstravagant Easter Chick Bonnet won the hearts of the judges and was crowned the winner of the Easter Bonnet Design Competition. The judges were impressed with the attention to detail and the creativity that went into the design. Audrey’s Feather and Eggs Bonnet was also a standout entry, showcasing her unique style and flair.

Ameet Kotecha, Managing Director and Head of the Family at Boutique Care Homes, expressed his admiration and congratulations to all the winners and runners up. He said, “I am incredibly proud of the dedication, creativity, and passion that our residents and team members have shown in these competitions. Congratulations to all the winners and runners up, and thank you to everyone who participated!”

We would also like to give a special mention to Brampton Manor for their Easter bonnets, especially Alex for his male bonnet, and Chartwell House for their community involvement on their bonnets, with local school children assisting the residents. These entries truly showcased the spirit of inclusivity and belonging that we hold so dear at Boutique Care Homes.

The winning poems will published on the Boutique Care Homes Website next week and a collection of the Easter Bonnets will be featured on our website on Easter Sunday.!

Congratulations to all the winners and runners up once again!
