Meet our Activities Coordinator, Victoria Hunt

I’m Vicky and I have been working here at Kingfisher Lodge since April 2016. I began my career at Barchester working in the kitchen, but I soon realised that I wanted to spend more time with residents.

I’ve been a florist for over 10 years and enjoy showing residents my creative side.

I organise events, guest entertainers, all of our daily activities and one-to-one sessions for those who prefer not to join in with group activities.

I really enjoy this role and love coming to work.

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.

Come and join us at our Open Day

Meet our dedicated team on Saturday 19th January, who can answer any questions you may have about our home.

Bauble the Boss

To celebrate Christmas Jumper Day, the whole team and residents wore their best festive attire for the whole day in an effort to raise money for Save the Children. The main event was our General Manager being baubled, so every resident attached a bauble to Clare Sinclair, all in the name of charity.

Christmas Fête

Our Fête was a huge success; we had crafts and arts stalls, in addition to a tombola and a raffle. To follow, we had some mulled wine, mince pies and a festive buffet for residents, families and guests to enjoy.

Carol Service

We were lucky enough to have the Saltford Brownies here at Kingfisher to sing Christmas Carols with us – and, of course, we all wore Christmas hats to mark the occasion.

Christmas Flower Arranging

We prepared for our Christmas Fête by making loads of flower arrangements for the day. We had Christmas music on and plenty of mince pies to keep our energy levels up.
