Meet our Activities Coordinator, Melanie Stubbs

Hello, my name is  Mel and I am one of the Activities Coordinators here at Corrina Lodge. I have been here for over 5 years and can honestly say that I love my role. 

I have met some truly amazing residents and some wonderful families. I delight in facilitating interesting and relevant group activities and events, but also spending one-to-one time with residents, simply listening, talking, or even pampering. 

Corrina Lodge has a brilliant sense of a community, and I particularly pride myself on making sure that residents, friends and their families feel welcome here when visiting. 

I look froward to meeting you.

Activities at our home

We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

The Royal Wedding

Residents, friends, families and staff gathered in the lounge to watch the royal wedding. The atmosphere was wonderful; there were tears, laughter and smiles. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed a sumptuous buffet and some wedding cake that was made by our Head Chef, along with a glass of sparkly to toast the newly weds.

Open Day

Corrina Lodge recently welcomed the local community for an afternoon of musical entertainment, afternoon tea & cakes and the chance to meet the team and look around the home.

Our open day was held on 21st April between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m. Guests were able to meet and chat to the friendly staff, ask all the questions they had about care and enjoy the hospitality and entertainment on offer.

Councillor Valerie White, the Mayor of Surrey Heath, officially opened our newly refurbished home. She said our home is beautiful and so welcoming. She spent time with residents, their friends and families indoors and outside.

Our regular entertainer, Catherine Tarrant, sang a melody of familiar songs, and everyone joined in with her.

Freshly prepared sandwiches and cakes made by our Head Chef were also really enjoyed, along with a glass of sparkly.

Christmas Cake Competition

Our Head Chef, Frank Fatura, made this snowman cake for Barchester's Christmas Cake Competition. Fingers crossed, we win. Also, much to everyone's amusement, we used it at our Christmas Extravaganza for our 'Guess the weight of the cake' competition as a prize. One visitor went home very very happy!

Halloween

We had such a fun day on Halloween; residents and staff dressed up, enjoyed a themed lunch and watched a scary movie. The home was festooned with cobwebs, spiders, witches and pumpkins. The activity team attempted to 'scare' every resident, but we all just ended up laughing – it was such a brilliant day.

Barchester's 25th Anniversary

Residents, loved ones, staff members and visitors had a wonderful afternoon celebrating Barchester's 25th birthday. Everyone enjoyed dressing up for the occasion and indulged in a scrumptious cream tea prepared by our Chefs. 

We had a fun singalong with our entertainer, stopping only to raise a glass and cut the amazing birthday cake that was created by our Head Chef.
