The Queen’s 95th Birthday High Tea

Friday 11th June 2021 - 2.00pm

Although traditionally high tea refers to a substantial early evening meal that includes tea, we use it to describe a regal and fun afternoon tea! Fancy hats, petit fours, pastries, cucumber sandwiches, and cake all served on delicate china plates. All done with pomp and ceremony!

And they’re off at Royal Ascot!

Tuesday 15th June 2021 - 2.00pm

It’s the play-at-home day at the races that’s great fun for all the residents and staff. This Ascot race afternoon is everything you need for a flutter without the risk of losing your shirt!

Totem Pole Art

Tuesday 22nd June 2021 - 2.00pm

As part of celebrating World Rainforest Day, our residents will be given the chance to take part in creating a colourful totem pole which will be part of our garden challenge and on show in our garden for all to see.

All Things Wimbledon

Monday 28th June 2021 - 2.00pm

How many famous tennis players can you name? Our residents will be trying to name as many as they can with our famous tennis players quiz whilst they’re drinking Pimm’s Cup, a gin-based cocktail with ginger ale, cucumbers, and a sprig of mint.

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!
