Meet our Activities Coordinators, Phoebe, Janice and Anna
Our Activities Team are always busy with our residents hosting and organizing events that compliment and enrich the bespoke lifestyle experience with us here at Hilton Park.
Activities at our home
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
Life at our home
Hilton Park held a Remembrance Day service for the residents, staff, relatives and friends. Children from the local school joined us to sing hymns, and three wreathes were laid by residents who served in the armed forces.
Dorothy was born in Ilford on the 21st of October 1919. To celebrate her 100th birthday, the activities team created a memory board to commemorate her achievements, including her time in the RAF.
On the day, Dorothy enjoyed a big family get together, and the next day had a party with her friends at Hilton Park. She received her card from the Queen, along with many gifts and cards from family and friends. Dorothy said she had two wonderful days and was very thankful to everyone for joining her in the celebrations.
Brian’s ‘make a wish’ was to return with his wife to the village where he was born, married and ran a business. Both Brian and his wife Eileen were active members of their community, taking part in various enterprises and always helping others. The day was a great success with lovely weather, and there were many members of the community to reminisce with at every venue they visited. They ended the day sitting by the bowls green at the club where Brian had been president for many years.
Hilton Park hosted its annual Dog Show featuring ten entertaining categories from “Waggiest Tail” to “Scruffiest Mutt” as well as “Dog that the judge most wanted to take home”. Categories were judged by members of the Pat Dog Society apart from the "Prettiest Bitch" category which was chosen by our residents. Nancy, owned by Mabel Mercer scooped the award and really enjoyed her prize - as did all the winners! Everyone had a delightful afternoon including the furry competitors and many of our residents said that they cannot wait for next years show!
Summer Fete 2019
Hilton Park hosted its renowned annual Summer Fete over the last weekend in June on what was one the most beautiful days of the year! The sun was shining and lots of residents and their families said it was the best Fete yet! Craft stalls, games, live entertainment from the Cyriacs and a BBQ too - summer is certainly in full swing at Hilton Park!
Pygmy Goats and Chicks visit Hilton Park
Hilton Park residents enjoyed the visit from the Pygmy Goats and baby Chicks. In fact, it was difficult to separate some of the animals who were so contented in the laps and arms of our residents. They certainly had the natural touch!
