Meet our Activities Coordinator, Nicky Wilshaw

Nicky has worked at Moreton Hill for 11 years and is in charge of all the activities in the home, from in-house entertainment to theme days, to craft sessions and quizzes.

Activities at our home

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

A Poem for the Weather

The Moreton Hill bard has been at it again; Moira wrote this lovely poem to celebrate the recent hot weather:

Heatwave

We’re having a heatwave -
A tropical heatwave!
It’s not so sun rising
The temperature is rising
We are having a heatwave
This hot weather gives me swollen feet
An ice cold footbath is a welcome treat
No problem choosing what to eat
Salads and fruit are the ones that attract.
Open the window, turn on the fan
Lose some inches if I can
Morning strolls to get some fresh air
Oh for a Moreton Hill breeze
Which in winter makes us freeze!
Then to the courtyard to sit in the sun
To do the crossword can be fun
But beware – take good care
Slap on the sun block and wear a hat
Turn down nature’s thermostat.
