Staff reporter (Border Counties)

Residents at a care home in Chirk had a hoot of a time recently thanks to a visit from some feathered friends.

Staff and residents at Chirk Court Care Home, which is managed by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, welcomed guests from the Stockley Birds of Prey Centre in Arley near Northwich.

“As well as arranging a wide range of our own activities and events for residents, we also link in with many organisations in the wider community who can entertain, delight, or intrigue residents often with an insight to new hobbies and interests,” said care home manager Lisa Johnson.

Mandi Southern, activities coordinator at Chirk Court added: “Residents were absolutely delighted when the owls visited.

“The birds were incredibly calm and happy to be handled under the guidance of the sanctuary staff.

“It was a real privilege to welcome the owls, allowing residents to have a personal encounter directly with the birds.”
