Fieldings in Sutton-in-AshfieldWe took part in Anosmia Awareness on the 27th of Feb. Anosmia is a lack of a sense of smell, so as a challenge we filled some dishes with different smells, covered them with foil, put a small hole in the top. The aim is to recognise the smells, and whoever got the most was the winner. It was more challenging than the residents thought it would be, but a lot of fun.
