Needlework Class with Jill

FRIDAY 11TH & 25TH OCTOBER - 2:00pm

Jill will continue her fantastic work with our residents in October. Jill comes in every other Friday and teaches cross-stitching. She is very patient and knowledgeable about all things artsy and crafty as she has just retired as a secondary school art teacher. She is now focusing on teaching art to adults in the community and Thirlestaine Park is the first venue she has started at! Jill’s sessions are an hour long and focus on needlework – she caters each session to everyone’s abilities and some of our ladies have moved on to embroidery skills! Join us fortnightly in the activities room on the first floor and have some fun!

Wear it Pink Day

Friday 18th October 2019

We will be celebrating Wear It Pink Day again this year to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. Every Breast Cancer Awareness Month, wear it pink brings together thousands of people on one day, all with the same aim – to wear pink, raise money and help make life-saving breast cancer research happen. Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink day is one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, having raised over £33 million since launching in 2002, and this year wear it pink is going to be bigger than ever! We invite all residents, relatives, friends and staff to get involved – wear pink wigs, hats, shoes, nail varnish, lipstick – whatever you want! Entertainment and refreshments will be served on the day, as well as a cake sale.

Horticultural Therapy with Emma

Wednesday 23rd October 2019 - 2:00pm

Emma is back and ready to plant some bulbs for next spring and support the residents in getting the flower beds neat and ready for the winter ahead. Emma’s sessions are engaging, fun and suitable for all abilities.

Ballroom Dancing Demo & Workshop

Saturday 26th October 2019 - 6:30pm

We are so excited to welcome Sue, the daughter of our lovely resident Val, and her dance partner to Thirlestaine Park to give us a demo of some ballroom favourites such as the tango, cha cha cha and rumba. Sue and her partner will then encourage some of our residents to do a bit of dancing and we will finish the evening off watching that night’s episode of Strictly Come Dancing. Wine and other refreshments will be served – all are invited to come along.

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!
