Garden Nursery

Wednesday 3rd May 2017 - 2:00pm

Our residents are keen gardeners – a handful even used to belong to the horticultural society! We have decided there is only one thing for it, we will be taking a trip down to the local nursery in Shurdington! The residents have stated they know which flowers to buy for our Garden Challenge entry and they will not be holding back!

Visit to our Local

Wednesday 10th May 2017 - 2:00pm

To many people, a pub trip might seem mundane but to our residents it is a social event that allows them to get out and about and share funny stories over a pint or a glass of wine. Our pub trips are always eventful with funny stories and smiles all round!

Dementia Awareness Week – Andy Yapp

Tuesday 16th May 2017 - 3:00pm

Join us for afternoon tea when the very popular Andy Yapp will be entertaining our residents with his guitar and sharing his wisdom on the history of the songs, which our residents love listening to! Andy is an amazingly talented guitarist and singer who lifts all the spirits of the residents and engages them with his tunes. Come and enjoy the entertainment from our residents’ favourite performer!

Professional Cello Player

Sunday 21st May 2017 - 11:00am

We have been running a classical music morning every Friday for the past few months as requested by the residents. During this time, residents like to have a cup of tea and read the newspaper whilst listening to vinyl records of classic composers. From there, we have built upon this activity and have live piano music playing! Now for the first time, we have a professional cello player coming in to join us on 21st May, to perform for us and share some knowledge on the history of music as well.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01242 505 560 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
