Residents Visit Santa’s Grotto

Date posted: 5th January 2021

Father Christmas paid our residents a visit this year when he came to our very own Santa’s Grotto. Residents came to the grotto to meet Father Christmas, enjoyed a cup of tea and a chat with him and sang some Christmas carols too before he made his way around the home greeting other residents, spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear. 

Lincroft’s Collective Poppy Collage

Date posted: 10th December 2020

On 2nd and 3rd November, our residents took part in making a collective poppy collage to help raise funds for Kidlington Royal British Legion. Individual poppies were made out of felt and wool or residents could choose a paper poppy that they styled or coloured in. The collage was displayed in the bistro area during Remembrance Week in the lead up to Armistice Day and we also ensured our residents handiwork was on display during our Remembrance Sunday Service led by some of the residents. Our delighted residents are very proud to have raised £130.08 for this year’s Poppy Appeal. 

Resident Rekindles Fondness for Piano Playing

Date posted: 6th November 2020

The daughter of our resident Brian told us her dad used to play the piano a lot so on a lovely, bright morning, our leisure and wellness coordinator Lorna gave Brian the chance to have a go on the home’s keyboard. She set up the keyboard and a CD player, to play classical music which she knew he loved so he could play along to it.

Listening to our residents like and dislikes, passions and hobbies enables us to create a robust and engaging leisure and wellness programme but also, to ensure we have everything a resident could need within the home to live a fulfilling and inspiring life.
