Remembrance Day

Monday 4th November 2019 - 2:30pm

Our residents here at Lincroft Meadow will be crafting poppies which will then be combined to make a stunning poppy wall in commemoration of Remembrance Day. They will be crafting poppies using the bottom of plastic bottles and some red paint.

Knit & Knatter Group


Many of our residents enjoy creating and making little bits and pieces. In the Knit & Natter group, Sue will be helping them to knit little squares, which will then be combined together to create a blanket which will be donated to a local charity.


Thursday 21st November 2019 - 2:30pm

To mix things up a bit, the residents will be starting off their ‘Art around the World’ monthly activity with some African art. With the help of In2Culture, our residents can get stuck into the culture of Africa and learn different artistic methods and it will be a great opportunity for them to really get creative.

Visit from the Village Choir

Sunday 24th November 2019 - 11:30am

Music is such an important part of so many of our residents’ lives and what better way to express the joys of music than with a visit from a local village choir who will sing for our residents. This will be a great chance for everyone to sing along to the music or simply listen to the beautiful voices of the choir.

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!
