Meet our Activities Coordinator, Steve Chamberlain

Steve has worked at Hunters since 2011 and manages activity provision in the home, from the weekly quiz and daily activities to theme days and musical entertainment, in addition to larger scale events involving the local community, such as the annual Summer Fête.

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.

Gardening Volunteers

This week Hunters held a volunteer gardening day. We were joined by seventeen volunteers from Cirencester college, who joined residents, relatives and staff to prune plants and plant lots of colour in our courtyard gardens.

The day was a great success with everyone really getting into the spirit of the activity. The volunteers were treated to a barbecue lunch provided by our kitchen. At the end of the day the results were amazing, residents can sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

A big thank you to everyone who contributed on the day.

Garden Visit

At Hunters we always take the opportunity to invite the local community into the home, but recently we were invited for an afternoon tea, by a local resident, to enjoy her beautiful garden and hospitality.

The residents enjoyed the beautiful weather whilst being served afternoon tea with homemade cake and fresh fruit. The residents were also able to take away some fresh flowers with them, but more importantly they took away some happy memories. A big thank you to Brenda for her wonderful hospitality.

Duke of Gloucester Nursery

This week at Hunters we were treated with a visit from the Duke of Gloucester Nursery group who came along for a morning play as the theme of the event was the book Sharing a Shell. The residents had a lovely morning sitting, playing and reading to the children, afterwards everyone was rewarded with squash and biscuits. The event was a great success with a real sense of happiness and fun. The nursery will be visiting again in July.

Summer Fête

On the first Saturday of June, we hosted our annual Summer Fête & Classic Car show to raise money for Dementia UK. We had seen torrential rain and gale force winds, but luckily the rain held off for the afternoon, and everyone was able to join in with the fun without getting wet.

Attractions included Fairford Classic Car Club, Walks with Hawks, ukulele entertainment from George Reformby, a BBQ, ice creams, a raffle and stalls to suit all of the family.

The event was opened by the Mayor of Cirencester, Councillor Patrick Coleman, and £662 was raised for a very worthwhile cause close to the hearts of many.
