Meet our Activities Coordinator, David Alderman
David has been our Activities Coordinator for over five years. He is involved in the creation and coordination of all of our activities and events designed for residents, as well as organising shopping trips and other excursions out into the community and local area. Married with three grown-up kids, he now enjoys his spare time painting the beautiful countryside locally.
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!
Life at our home
The "King" was in the building!
Residents and guests at Prestbury Beaumont enjoyed an afternoon with the ‘King’ as part their Elvis birthday celebrations. Everyone was treated to a live music performance by Elvis impersonator, Dave Bushell who performed a selection of classic hits including Suspicious Minds. Residents joined in with the singing, and clapped along as our Guest Elvis performed his finale song Burning Love. The hospitality team at the home also provided a spread of sweet and savoury treats for guests to enjoy during the show.
General Manager, Maureen Southern said, “Our residents and guests had a wonderful day singing along with the wonderful performers. We do our best to provide a wide range of activities and entertainment at Prestbury Beaumont as part of the lifestyle enrichment programme for residents, and this was one of our favourites!”
One resident said “I haven’t heard some of these songs in many years. The classics never go out of style!” The afternoon was a great success and afterwards they had their photos taken.
Residents were invited to The Kings School nativity play rehearsals and met some of the cast after the performance. We had front seats and loved every minute with the children, who were aged 3 to 5 years. We all had a wonderful time!
Last Cruise of the Year
Happy times as Beaumont residents enjoyed the final cruise of the year along the Macclesfield Canal on the Mary Sunley.
The weather was against us, but it didn’t dampen the fun. The autumn colours were a treat to see and we will be back on board next spring.
National Doodle Day
Prestbury Beaumont residents enjoyed the National Doodle Day on the 20th October by creating their own fascinating doodles. Ruth is pictured here with her own attractive and rather thought provoking doodle. Everyone found it relaxing and very therapeutic. So we may keep on doodling!
95th Birthday Celebration
Mr Jim Tryon, a well-known volunteer who has been to central Africa 11 times over the last two decades, celebrated his 95th birthday whilst convalescing at the Prestbury Beaumont.
He marked this milestone, as seen here, by a celebration with his family and a visit from the Mayor of Macclesfield, Janet Jackson, with her consort.
Currently recuperating from illness the visit from Janet was a complete surprise. Unknown to him, she was invited to attend by a family friend.
Mr Tryon is an active supporter of Christian Relief Uganda (CRU) which works with underprivileged children.
Visiting the country over the last 20 years he has seen for himself the real difference this charity makes to their lives.
Cruise on the Canal
Residents recently enjoyed a cruise on the canal. They departed from the local marina on the Mary Sunley 2 which is a slow moving canal barge that allows everyone to take in the views across the beautiful Cheshire countryside. During the trip, refreshments were served and there was even a stop for ice cream as the sun was shining .
Everyone had a great day out, one resident in particular thrilled with the day. The lady had never been on a barge before, so really enjoyed every minute of the trip. The trip was a great way for people to create memories and spend time together doing something a little different.
Residents enjoy the wide range of activities the home provides to ensure their everyday live enrichment.
