Regular activities include flower arranging, art and craft sessions, quiz nights and tea parties. As well as fun events in the home, entertainers often come and visit us too. We have recently been visited by the Salvation Army, musicians and local drama students.

As you would expect, special holidays are incorporated into our activity calendar and birthdays are always celebrated with a party and a big slice of cake!

We invite our residents to join in with choosing and planning activities and encourage those moving in with us to continue with their current hobbies and interests.
