Meet our Activities Coordinator, Fay Parry

Hello, I'm Fay, the Activities Coordinator here at Bradshaw Manor. I graduated from Glyndwr University with a degree in Complementary Therapies for Healthcare.

The main focus of my role is to ensure that residents have fun and have a role in selecting the activities that we provide here. 

My aim is to provide fun and therapeutic activities for everyone to benefit from. At Bradshaw Manor, we endeavour to provide the best we can for those we support. As we say: the residents do not live in our workplace – we work in their home.

Friendship Day

Residents at Bradshaw Manor enjoyed celebrating Friendship Day by making memory jars with their favourite memories to date. They also enjoyed making their very own friendship bracelets to keep or give to their loved ones. This was accompanied by tea, coffee and cake whilst reminiscing and sharing their favourite stories of their friends, past and present.

Residents of Bradshaw Manor were paid a special visit by Manorafon Farm Park on 5th July. They enjoyed an afternoon of stroking and cuddling baby goats and rabbits. They loved it so much that they have requested for Lizzie to bring the animals back again soon!

Summer House Visit

We had a lovely visit from The Summer House Out of School Club. The children visited us from a local club/nursery and we organised an afternoon of activities for the residents and kids.

Everyone enjoyed playing giant Snakes & Ladders, and the children sat with residents to make windmills. Together, they painted and decorated pots to make cress heads. 

Fay, our Activities Coordinator, and Mandy from the Summer House, are planning another visit in the next half term holiday.

Look out in the local Journal newspaper, as this lovely story will be featured soon.
