Activities at Newington Court

Our Activities Coordinator here at Newington Court constantly strives to mentally and physically stimulate those we support in our home. We have our own minibus enabling residents to go shopping, to the local garden centre, out for fish and chips, and for boat trips in the summer. We also have regular visits from the PAT dog, musicians and entertainers. We hold cheese and wine evenings for residents and their families and our residents attend services at the local school for Remembrance Day and Christmas. The junior school also come in and sing for our residents at Christmas. The residents also attended a Christmas Party held at a local Grammar School hosted by the students.

Remembrance Parade

On 28th October, we were visited by the 1039 Gillingham Sqn ATC Cadets of Gillingham.

They performed a remembrance service for residents and laid a wreath in front of our new planter. Resident, Mr. Pack read out a poem by Laurence Binyon. Afterwards they joined us for some sandwiches and light refreshments.

Residents have been knitting poppies that have been used on our remembrance wall, which shows the details of all of the Newington men who died during World War One.

On November 11th, we are going to see the parade in Sittingbourne and lay a wreath of our poppies.
