Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lynn Amiri

I am married with 2 children and 2 rather annoying rescue cats. I have worked in a variety of roles from office administration to peer mediation co-ordinator in a local school.

I lived in Italy for a number of years and love all Italian food; especially when somebody else cooks it for me!

I love to read, especially crime novels. I am a regular theatre goer with a passion for musicals. I like to sing and dance (albeit badly!)

Activities at Leonard Lodge

Our activities team offer a wide range of social events, from the very popular Friday morning bingo, to gentle exercise sessions, skittles, regular animal visits and arts & crafts sessions. We are fortunate to have a team of volunteers who stop by weekly to provide additional support, allowing residents the opportunity for one-to-one sessions. These sessions could include anything, even something as simple as playing a game of Scrabble or just having a cup of tea and a chat. We believe that it is essential to support people in such a way that they are able to continue to live full and happy lives doing the things that they enjoy.

Blackwater Pygmy Goats

We had a visit from Blackwater Pygmy Goats. The goats were incredibly cute and the residents and the staff enjoyed cuddling them. They brought a smile to the residents' faces and were a big hit with everyone.

Choir Visit

We enjoyed a visit from Trinity Church choir as part of out Easter celebrations. The choir sang beautifully and performed hymns that residents remembered their parents singing for them. It was an enjoyable and uplifting experience for us all.

Mother's Day Assembly

St Joseph's Catholic School invited us to attend their Mother's Day assembly, where residents presented prizes to the children after judging a drawing competition. The pictures the children drew can be seen on the wall behind us. The assembly was lovely with lots of excellent singing – we all really enjoyed it!

Snow Day

Staff took advantage of the bad weather to build a snowman for residents. They all enjoyed sitting inside in the warm whilst the masterpiece was being created.

National Puzzle Day

On National Puzzle Day, we all got together to try and complete this fiendishly difficult puzzle. Despite our best efforts and the help of passing staff and visitors, we didn't manage to get it finished on the day, but we had fun trying!
