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.

Music Man

We were joined by entertainer, Andy Tee, who performed for residents recently. There was a lot of dancing, and even a conga train.

Royal Wedding Celebrations

Here at Kingfisher Lodge, we celebrated the royal wedding in style. We had a buffet lunch so we could all watch the wedding together, and our fabulous chef, Karen, made us all a special elderflower and lemon cake treat. Everyone got into the spirit of the celebrations, including the Nurses, Hosts, and the housekeeping staff, which made the day extra special for residents.
