With Easter being a time for celebration, and of course, the consumption of lots of chocolate treats, it was only fitting that Radfield Home Care Harrogate, Wetherby and North Yorkshire shared the fun with its clients and carers.

Contact time is of course at a premium for those who have been working in the health care sector, with adherence to strict Covid-19 social distancing and lockdown rules meaning many have not had the usual amount of interaction with the office team. Matthew Nutting, director of Radfield Home Care Harrogate, Wetherby and North Yorkshire had the great pleasure of making sure his team of care professionals received a cracking treat, a lovely chocolate egg - a small but tasty gesture to show that the team is so valued.

Carers were able to pop into the office to collect their eggs and for those unable to do so, they have been kept in a safe place, hopefully hidden well away! Radfield care professional Ellie was pleased to receive hers:



"It is lovely to receive an Easter gift from the management team - who doesn't love a bit of chocolate as a treat!"



Radfield’s clients also received an Easter egg each - the tradition of Easter, along with many other events, is something that Radfield Home Care Harrogate, Wetherby and North Yorkshire is always keen to support and get involved with. Being able to help others participate in these events, through the provision of home care, is so important and is especially so in a year that has seen many clients not being able to attend or carry out their own annual traditions.

The UK is not alone in celebrating all things Easter and here are a few fascinating facts you may not know about…

  • The tradition of decorating and painting eggs actually dates back thousands of years, the Greeks and Egyptians for example believed eggs to be the sign of fertility.

  • Exchanging sweets or chocolate, including the Easter egg, became popular in the mid-19th century when companies, particularly in France and Germany, became able to mass produce confectionery.

  • In 2021, UK retailers saw Easter egg sales soar by almost 50% (not all purchased by Radfield!), with an increase in people looking for more personalised hand crafted Easter eggs.

  • Cadbury produces an estimated 500 million creme eggs a year, with two-thirds being consumed in the UK.
