After years of trying, but falling just short, Sea Views Manor took out first prize at the Bellarine Agricultural Show’s Joan Golding OAM Perpetual Trophy.
The Ocean Grove aged care facility won top prize in the arts and crafts section with 17 residents and one group contributing 35 pieces for the judges.
Bob Harrington won first prize overall for his stunning tapestry work.
“It’s all about bringing out what they’ve already got and contributing,” lifestyle co-ordinator Glenn Chidzey said.
“Whether it’s first prize or not, it’s about contributing and enhancing their skills.”
Doris Maskell regularly knits for Red Cross and is currently making crocheted cats for the Ocean Grove Medical Clinic to give to children after they have had their immunisations.
“There’s so much variety there,” Doris said of the residents’ artworks.
“We were surprised at some of the talent that has come out,” Mr Chidzey said.
“Art is a great process that brings out the creativity in the mind.”
