Activities – September 2016

October 11th, 2016

During September our activities went well!  We have had a race day, name that tune, play your cards right and our Residents favourite Bingo, with prizes galore!

Dance

We have also had the privilege of welcoming Martins Dance School to Christopher Grange to come and dance for our Residents and we are already looking forward to arrange another date for the dance troop to come in again.

We also took some of our Residents out for a look around the shops and for lunch which was enjoyed by everyone!

We also took part in a Coffee Morning in aid of Marie Curie which raised a massive £126!  We would like to thank everyone who donated and who took part in the event.

Activities – August 2016

Teresa 100th BdayActivities in August have been ongoing and this month, instead of entertainment, we opted for ‘Mersey Memories’, which proved a big hit with our Residents.  We had lots of old photographs of Liverpool on a big screen which the Residents could relate to; these photographs comprised of old picture houses, shops, dance halls, pubs and Albert Dock (old and new).

We have recently started a Gentleman’s Club which is going very well.  We have our Residents (gentlemen) getting to know each other by telling us where they lived and worked and talking about their family life and hobbies.  We have now introduced dominoes, cards and darts (velcro darts and board!).

Our day to day activities have continued throughout the month, were we have not introduced scrabble, as well has a pub lunch out after a trip to New Brighton looking at the changes that have happened over the years.

Activities – July 2016

Barbara 90During July we celebrated two special birthdays for our Residents, we had Barbara who was 90 and Hannah who was 102 years young!  Both ladies had parties and thoroughly enjoyed their day.

Armchair exercise is becoming very popular with our Residents with the help of the DVD ‘Move it or Lose it’ and this is creating alot of fun and laughter between everyone.

The monthly Social was again a success with fish and chips for supper which is becoming a favourite.

This month we tried a new activity which was ‘Race Day’ – residents came along and watched a DVD of the race but firstly they had studied the form of the horses, their odds and then placed their bets – each Resident had £5,000 in cash (not real!) to bet.  Violet was our overall winner of the race.

Court HeyOur trips out this month have included: Court Hey Wild Flower Centre, Otterspool, Pub Lunches – whilst the weather was good!

We also had ‘hoopla’ in one of our beautiful gardens which was a big success with Residents and their relatives and friends joining in.

Upcoming events for August include: Gentleman’s Club, Theresa’s 100th Birthday, 70’s Theme Night, Mersey Memories (17th August 2016 at 2pm in the Market Place) and Scrabble Club.
