Meet our Activities Coordinators, Marek Manteufel & Margaret Fagan

We both joined Marnel a while ago and we are very excited to be part of such a proactive and dedicated team. There are lots of ideas and innovations, all to enhance quality of life of our residents. Every day is different and to understand the needs of our residents, building relationship with them and keeping in touch with their families and friends, is the most important and rewarding job we could have wish for.

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.

Vaccine Day: Part 2

Our residents and team received the second dose of the vaccine. We are very thankful to our Local Chineham GP Practice for making this happen.


St Patrick's Day

Residents and the team enjoyed our St. Patrick’s Day celebration with plenty of fun, engagement, dancing and food. Some of our gentlemen said yes to a pint of Guinness and glass of Irish whiskey. What a great day!

Pamper Day

In such a difficult time, there is nothing better than  having a pamper day. Residents were delighted and so pleased with all the attention. It was such a great day with ambient music and laughter. More to come.

Don't Wait, Vaccinate!

We are celebrating a great achievement with much delight: all our current residents, team Members and volunteers at, except for those who exempt due to medical reasons, have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination, and with many more having also booked their second dose in the coming weeks.

New Year's Day Vaccination

It has been a truly wonderful start to 2021. All our residents and some team members received the magic shot of safety. Dr Masterson and Dr Abbott, from Chineham Medical Practice, were true angels and turned our hope of a safe home into reality. The team at Marnel worked tirelessly to support the doctors. What a wonderful Day!
