Little Apples Nursery

Thursday 4th April 2019 - 2:15pm

We have set up fortnightly intergenerational visits at Little Apples Nursery, with the aim of building a strong relationship between the young and elderly. On Thursday 4th April, we will be painting eggs and running other fun craft activities ready for our Easter egg hunt on 18th April just before Easter. On 29th April, the children will be planting flowers in the garden with our residents who have loved their past visits and are very excited to see the kids once more.

Shakespear Day

Tuesday 23rd April 2019 - 2:00pm

We are excited to announce that we have arranged for the Cheltenham Shakespeare Society to come in and perform scenes, monologues and sonnets by William Shakespeare. Interestingly, Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon on 23rd April 1564 and died in Stratford-upon-Avon on 23rd April 1616, so this is why Shakespeare Day is celebrated on that date. We will have refreshments and musical entertainment throughout the day. Friends and relatives are most welcome to attend.

Barry Juckes

Thursday 25th April 2019 - 11:00am

The ever popular Barry Juckes is coming to perform for our residents again. He will be performing music from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Our residents love it when Barry performs for them – he never fails to entertain! While Barry is singing, his wife interacts and dances with the residents and they really enjoy the atmosphere. Barry will also be appearing at a very special event here at Thirlestaine Park in late May – watch this space!

Art Class with Katherine


Our very talented art teacher, Katherine, joins us on a weekly basis and provides one of our most engaging sessions. Last year, Katherine played a major role in our art exhibition at the Wilson Art Gallery where we had the mayor of Cheltenham and local MP Alex Chalk in attendance. This year, we are planning on doing an in-home exhibition to exhibit all the recent artwork our residents have created. Next time you’re passing, why not pop in and see the amazing art our residents are producing.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01242 505 560 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
