Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lucy Wilkinson

Lucy started work with us here at Beeston View on 6th March 2018. She came to us from a background working in the entertainment industry, which she did for 4 years prior. She used to make bookings for corporate events, weddings and special occasions.

Lucy has also spent time working at Chester Zoo as a photographer, where she took pictures of the visitors there. She is used to working with a diverse range of people and has always wanted to work within a care home setting as an Activities Coordinator, so this is an extremely exciting time for her.

Lucy also has lots of musical talent; she plays the ukulele, the guitar and can sing as well.

You will recognise Lucy if you visit us, as she is the one with the bright orange hair!

Activities at our home

Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.

Pizza Fun

We have been trying some new food-themed activities with residents at Beeston View. Recently, we made some pizzas with them, which went down really well. They were able to choose their own toppings and get creative. Once the pizzas were made, we cooked them in the oven in the main kitchen and had a tasting session when they were done. They were delicious!

Falling with Style

Senior Activities Coordinator, Lynne Loughlin, did a skydive on 10th June to raise money for residents at Beeston View and Iddenshall Hall. It was a beautiful day and the jump was absolutely incredible. 

Thank you to everyone who supported her with kind donations – it was worth it!

Eyes Down!

We are continuing our regular bingo sessions at Beeston View, and the residents from Iddenshall Hall are still coming across to join us too. It is proving to be a popular afternoon and the staff are joining in and playing with us. We will continue this activity throughout the summer.

Cranage Hall Concert

For the 5th year running, we have attended the 'Thanks For The Memory Big Band Concert' at Cranage Hall. This is always a real hit with residents. This year, we met up with our sister home, Westvale House, and it was lovely seeing residents from both homes interact. We were up and dancing in the isles and singing along to all the songs.

Royal Wedding Celebrations

We had a wonderful day celebrating the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. We watched the footage from 9:30 a.m. and enjoyed analysing the outfits everyone had chosen to wear for the occasion as they arrived at the chapel.

We arranged a special buffet lunch so that the residents could continue watching the event whilst they ate. We drank some festive fizz and adorned hats for the occasion as well.

Choir Visit

We had a performance at Beeston View from a local choir recently. The Decibellas are based in Tarporley and are a group of approximately 70 singers who perform a wide variety of songs. Residents were so impressed by their singing that one or two of them were crying happy tears, saying how lovely their voices were. We will definitely be booking them again very soon.

We are also encouraging people from local communities who are taking care of someone living with dementia to come along and join us too. The sessions are free and will be held on the 3rd Monday of each month.
