Over the past year, therapeutic poet Chris Meredith has been hosting monthly Zoom sessions with our residents at Headingley Hall.
The residents have hugely enjoyed the sessions, which involve Chris sharing poems with the group and opening up a discussion about them.
In Chris’s last session, to celebrate the experience he had shared with our residents, he asked the residents their favourite thing about Headingley Hall. Chris took their words, memories and reflections and created this beautiful poem – which we’re thrilled to share with you.

Headingley Hall is a home for care
Looking after the residents there
Kind, caring and approachable staff
They make us smile; they make us laugh
A beautiful garden with flowers and shrubs
They serve us with delicious grub
They even have a vegetarian menu
Headingley Hall is such a wonderful venue
Poetry reading, baking, arts, and crafts
Only describes a fraction of our happy tasks
For anyone thinking of joining us at Headingley Hall
You will have a wonderful time and have a ball!
