G Fitness with Becky


Our regular exercise sessions with Becky kicked off back in May and our residents just love her visits! She is so enthusiastic and really encourages all the residents to get involved, no matter their ability. In her short time at Thirlestaine Park, Becky has taken the time to get to know the residents and really focus on their individual needs. We are all looking forward to future sessions!

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!
