‘Everyone Matters’

 The Forbury Care Home in Leominster are in celebratory mood after being awarded an Arts Council England grant to run a year long community arts project called ‘Everyone Matters’. Working with artist Jeanette McCulloch and the staff team at The Forbury, the residents will enjoy being involved in and working on ambitious and creative ideas including a collaboration with pupils from Leominster Primary School on artworks for their new school. “The pupils are already familiar with visiting residents at The Forbury, but now we intend to have a ‘Buddy’ system so that pairs of children and residents work together, building towards large scale murals, textiles and decorative panels for the school” explains Jeanette. The project aims to link the residents from the Forbury with the wider community in Leominster through a regular Blog, this will also give family and friends of not just the residents but all the staff the opportunity to keep in touch. There will also be a limited edition ‘Forbury Community Newspaper’, which will be distributed around Leominster.

    Dear Jeanette and John,
    Thank you for all your hard work. I’ve found this blog very accessible and straightforward and I’ve looked through all the sections. You have lots of wonderful photos of the residents clearly happy and engaged in their work. Jeanette, I enjoyed seeing how you developed your colour-themed canvasses with them. I especially like the purple and red canvasses and the photo of your Mum!
    Would it be appropriate to add some of the residents’ conversations to your “Articles” section?
    Looking forward to seeing you soon,

    What a delightful page, full of colour and happy residents. I can see how hard you have worked at The Forbury Jan and on this page John. The lovely residents’ looked cheerful in their summer hats, dancing in the sun waiting for a home cooked BBQ. The staff work really hard and this shows in their resident’s faces. xx
