Creative Connections


We are excited to start the dementia friendly seated music and dance creative arts sessions this month, as part of our Creative Connections for Dementia Programme. The residents will be able to play musical instruments, enjoy a sing-along and dance to a variety of music.

Classic Comic Books

Monday 19th April 2021 - 11.30am

Comic books or graphic novels are a part of history and for many kids, comic books were more interesting and engaging than more traditional novels. Our residents will take a trip down memory lane by chatting about the classic comic books they enjoyed and looking at some old favourites.

Creativity & Innovation Day

Tuesday 20th April 2021

To celebrate Creativity and Innovation Day, we will asking our residents to have a go at making a windmill out of recyclable materials. The windmills will then be displayed in our garden as part of our new Porthaven Garden Challenge.

Everything English Day

Friday 23rd April 2021

With St. George’s Day and Shakespeare’s birthday, how could we not host an English day? During the day, we will be celebrating three of Shakespeare’s sonnets, listening to a short summary of The Tempest, eating scones and jam and having a St. George’s Day trivia quiz.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01865 950500 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
