Meet our Activities Coordinator, Marc Chidgey

Hello, my name is Marc, and I have worked at The Manor for over five years. I started off as a Kitchen Assistant and then took an interest in the activities provided and was given the opportunity to transfer teams. I love to spend time with residents just talking and sharing stories. My top priorities are to keep them as active as possible and, most importantly, to make them smile.

Activities at The Manor

Our activities staff are here 7 days a week and are constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those we care for in a group or individual basis. From trips to garden centres, the theatre, and flower shows to personal shopping and attending family events. We also love organising Christmas fairs, our famous classic car show, musicians, entertainment, and pizza and pint evenings. The team encourage families to visit and work closely with our volunteers to ensure that our residents social care is a priority, so that they have a fun filled and enriched stay whilst here at The Manor.

Punch & Judy

We were joined by Bishop’s Hull First School to thank them for doing such a brilliant job with their country dancing at our Classic Car Show back in the summer. The children and residents thoroughly enjoyed the performance by Dave Milton and are looking forward to seeing him again at the Christmas Fair.

On 28th September, we hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning. Lots of people baked cakes for the occasion and brought in some homemade delight, which all sold very quickly.

Birds of Prey

Last week we were joined by Sharandy’s Birds of Prey. We were shown three birds: a barn owl, a long-eared owl and an Egyptian falcon. Many residents were allowed to hold and stroke the birds and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their visit.
