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!

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.

Wings of Freedom

Colin Sutherland, from Wings of Freedom, visited us recently and everyone had a great time, especially when he introduced his latest addition - a two week old tawny owl he had bred by accident! We can't wait to see it in a couple of months when it's fully grown.

The View from Moreton Hill

One thing you never get used to at Moreton Hill is the stunning view from our own front door that reaches out to the Black Mountains and the Severn Estuary. On a clear day, you can see seven counties and both Severn Bridges and the sunsets are something else.

A Day in the Life of a Moreton Hill Resident

Resident, Moira, has written a new poem and wants to share it with everyone:

A Day in the Life of a Moreton Hill Resident

Hip hip hoorah!
I wake up to a sunny day
Across the estuary, the sun glints on windows
Of cottages in the Forest of Dean
Which can clearly be seen.

Off to tend the plants in the conservatory,
Then an hour of Tai Chi
To help my body stay healthy.

Break for lunch, 
Delicious food to much!
Afternoon activity;
A session of pottery
With super teacher, Paddy!

Now, one of the items I enjoy best:
Retire to my comfy nest.
Will I have any success
Answering question on Pointless?

Our Magical Mystery Tour

This wonderful poem was written by a resident:

Our Magical Mystery Tour

First trip of the year
The car is in gear
We are off to hunt for snowdrops!
White fluffy clouds like mops
Spread over a clear blue sky
The sun is shining on high
Climb up Selsley Hill
On to wide open spaces
Where Cotswold sheep with white faces
Enjoy the swedes
Making room for new seeds
Fresh furrow ploughed
Attract the seagull crowd
Now down a steep winding lane
Surrounded by trees
To our great pleasure
We find treasure
Clumps of white bells
Snuggled up in the dells
Mission accomplished
But no ... we are not finished
The view over The Severn
Completes our heaven
With a rainbow display
To end the day!
