Orchard House Care Home in Wisbech wanted to make sure that they let their local emergency services know how much they are appreciated, especially yesterday to mark Emergency Services Day.

The nursing, dementia and residential home wanted to repay their thanks for the support they received from their local ‘blue light heroes’ over the 18 months. Especially as they were particularly touched when on the last clap for carers, Wisbech’s local Fire Brigade arrived to share their support and applause with residents and staff at the front of the building.

Lifestyle Lead Miranda Robinson and resident Molly Standen decided to make of the most of the wonderful weather and walk through their lovely Wisbech community visiting local emergency services delivering ‘thank you’ cards and sweet treats. It was fantastic walking to each of our services and to see the appreciation of us thanking them for what they do in our community.” Miranda Richardson Orchard House Lead Lifestyle Co-ordinator


They visited the Fire Station, Police Station, Ambulance Station and the local District Nurses at the hospital. The thoughtful gestures of a card and sweet treats delivered by Molly and Miranda were gratefully received and touched those who received them.

Molly, who once worked for the Queen wanted to mark the occasion, “it was nice to give them something for the important work they do every day”.
