Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jen Vane-Stobbs

Jen joined the team at The Rhallt in October 2018 and is being supported by Activities Coordinator, Mel Henrico-Bird, who initially worked with the catering team here before joining Jen. Working with relatives and families, Jen and Mel devise and deliver an exciting new program of activities for the Rhallt, including frequent trips out of the home using our own minibus, as well as regular visiting groups, such as nursery infants, local schools, choirs, singers and other musicians.

Activities at our home

Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.

Pottery Class

We made some ceramic Easter tags in pottery class recently. Residents enjoy working with the clay, as it can be soothing to the touch. These tags will be added to our Easter egg raffle.

Park Lane Pre-School Visit

We had a lovely visit from the children at Park Lane Pre-School in Welshpool. They sang some songs to us and the residents and staff joined in with the hand movements. It was a really lovely afternoon!

Knit & Natter Thursday

We encourage the community to come and join us every Thursday at 3:00 p.m. to help knit or crochet with us. We are knitting blankets to donate to Powys Animal Welfare to help the animals whose owners are sick or have passed away to still feel loved and cared for. This charity is close to our hearts, as most residents have had pets and love animals. 

Any wool donations also welcome!
