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.

PAT Dogs

The two dogs - Eddie and Lizzie - are PAT dogs who visit us on a Friday, bringing with them Mum, Gabby, and little Amelie, who is 3. As you can see, they are very welcome; we had to hide the biscuits from Lizzie, the blond, four-legged fiend, as she will eat everything, much to the joy of residents.

On the Waterfront

We had a lovely day at Weston-super-Mare; the sun was about but the sea wasn't! The sea mist was so thick that we couldn't see anything. Even the famous pier was shrouded, but we weren't bothered, as we were too busy enjoying ice cream and fish & chips.

Resident, Moira, wrote a lovely poem about our little day trip, which you can read by clicking here.
