Meet our Activities Coordinator, Ann & Wendy

The Activities Team at Marnel Lodge create an enjoyable and varied daily programme of events and activities for residents and families members.

You will always get a warm welcome from Ann and Wendy. 

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.
