During the socially distanced visit, the Mayor gave the residents a geranium as part of his ‘Gift a Geranium’ initiative and said he was delighted to come out and meet people, including Short Breaks manager, Juan, and Julie who is currently staying there.
The ‘Gift a Geranium’ campaign aims to acknowledge the hard work people working in social care have been doing across the borough over the last few months. Hounslow residents are being encouraged to leave a geranium on doorsteps to show their appreciation.
One of Certitude’s Heads of Service, Melissa Layton, met with Mayor during his visit and said:
“It was lovely having the Mayor of Hounslow visit one of our houses today. His visit provided a welcome pick-me-up during this time and everyone here is looking forward to planting out their special geranium!”
And due to a small mistake, the Mayor also paid an unexpected visit to 49a Star Road the day before, where he received an impromptu welcome from Wayne and a song from Lavinia!
