Activities – January 2017

February 8th, 2017

After a busy festive period we began the New Year by asking our Residents their wishes for the New Year with the majority hoping for a peaceful and healthy 2017.


As usual our monthly Residents Social proved popular this month as we enjoyed a ‘fish and chip supper’ followed by a quiz which was enjoyed by all.  We also continued with our usual activities including card games, ‘name that tune’, parachute exercise, Bingo, crosswords, quizzes, hand massages and armchair exercises – which is proving quite popular amongst our new Residents.  Out Knitting Club and Book Club are still going well!

This month we held a Sir Ken Dodd day in celebration of his Knighthood.  We celebrated with a sing along to Ken’s music and we even had our own ‘tickling sticks’ whilst we enjoyed ‘jam butties’ and a drink of Sherry or Baileys.


We held a ‘Hot Chocolate Day’ with some marshmallows for our Residents this month which included a debate on the world today in comparison to the generations that our Residents grew up in.

Wednesday 25th January 2017 was ‘Burns Night’ and we celebrated this by gathering in the Market Place.  We also celebrated Chinese New Year by looking at our Chinese Community and Zodiac whilst enjoying a Sherry and eating fortune cookies.
