Heathcotes Oadby fire up the first BBQ of 2019!

7th May 2019

It may still be springtime, but there has been a touch of summer about recent weeks and Heathcotes services are never slow to seize the chance to get the barbecue going when the warm weather arrives. That was certainly the case at Heathcotes Oadby, where staff and service users headed to the garden for an al-fresco feast and some outdoor fun.

With a beautiful leafy garden at Oadby, a clear blue sky and the temperature comfortably over 20 degrees, it felt like a waste not to fire up the first barbie of 2019 and everyone made the most of the sunshine with a splash in the paddling pool, a kickabout and some relaxation on the swing chair. The highlight of the day was a sizzling spread on the grille, served up with a side of salad, all prepared and cooked with help from the service users. Suncream and salad cream were both squirted in sizeable dollops!


Tracy Savage, Services Manager at Heathcotes Oadby, said:

“It was such a gorgeous day and our service users really enjoyed soaking up the sun, as they always do! The paddling pool was particularly popular and I’m sure we’ll make good use of it again soon!”

Heathcotes Oadby were quick off the mark with the first barbecue of the year, but we’re sure that it won’t be the last - hopefully there will be plenty more opportunities for our services nationwide in the coming months!
