Shortbread Day

Wednesday 6th January 2021

This day is normally celebrated in the USA, but we thought we’d bring it to England this year and try our hand at making some shortbread biscuits. A lovely social and sensory activity for the residents and we’re sure the result will please a few bellies during the afternoon tea round!

Burns Night

Monday 25th January 2021

Always a special occasion, particularly for our Scottish residents – this Burns Night might look slightly different to how our previous ones have looked like, but nevertheless our chef will prepare a delicious haggis. We will celebrate the day by reading poetry by Robert Burns and listening to traditional Scottish music.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Wednesday 27th January 2021

Our residents are contributing to the new UK Holocaust Memorial by taking part in ‘Foundation Stone’. They will each paint a stone in remembrance of the 6 million Jews who were murdered at the hands of the Nazis. Building on the Jewish custom of placing a pebble on headstones when visiting a grave, foundation stones from across the United Kingdom will become part of the new memorial, each one a commitment to remembering and learning from the past.

Individual Gym Sessions


Join our leisure and wellness coordinator Alex for 1-to-1 gym sessions to keep you active and healthy. With lots of equipment in our home gym to use for gentle exercises, the residents can do their exercises at any time of the day.

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!

Barry Juckes is Back!

Date posted: 13th October 2020

In June, we couldn’t think of a better way to start the month than with a performance by Thirlestaine Park favourite, Barry Juckes! After months of lockdown, with no outside entertainment and limited visitors, we were thrilled to see Barry once again. He sang a range of popular songs from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and our residents absolutely loved his set. He never fails to entertain us plus the weather was glorious for his performance.
