RESIDENTS and day care clients at Yew Tree Cottage Care Home near Chard have enjoyed a breath of fresh air between all the rain.

Senior support worker Mandy Watson has distracted everyone from the appalling weather by demonstrating her new-found culinary skills at the home in Hornsbury Hill.

Care home owner Sarah-Jane Ambridge said: “Mandy has learned from colleagues and residents who are always willing to give advice and tips on creating fantastic food.

“The weather has been so awful that we haven’t been able to go out as we usually do, so Mandy’s cooking demonstrations have been a welcome distraction.”
