Sign Language

Friday 2nd October 2020 - 2.00pm

Our residents love to learn new skills, whether it is artistic skills or otherwise. Recently, we have been learning sign language together, and have mastered the BSL alphabet. In this activity, we will be learning some greetings, such as ‘how are you?’ and responses. These are skills that are sure to come in handy.

Decoupaging Animals


In order to celebrate World Animal Day on 4th October, our residents will be decoupaging animals. From dogs to elephants, our residents will have a number of options to choose from and get stuck into.

Baking Halloween Cakes

Thursday 29th October 2020 - 2.00pm

To help get everyone into the spooky spirit, our residents will be baking some Halloween cupcakes. These cupcakes will have lots of Halloween-themed decorations to share with all of the residents during the upcoming Halloween competition.

Witch’s Hat Competition

Friday 30th October 2020 - 2.00pm

Throughout the month, our residents will take part in activities to make and paint a witch’s hat. This will then be judged and winners from each unit will be crowned, winning a cauldron full of prizes. The cakes from a previous baking activity will also be shared out for everyone to enjoy.

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!
