Meet our Activities Coordinator, Robert Frazer

I started my career as a technical illustrator and graphic designer and continued in creative roles for many years. I have worked as a video animator, web designer, exhibition designer and, more recently, in marketing. I am delighted to share my creative past with our Sherwood Lodge residents in our arts and crafts activities.

Activities at Sherwood Lodge

Our Activities Coordinator is constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those we support by organising group and individual activities for anyone and everyone to participate in. We have regular outings in the mini bus to nearby places of interest including local garden centres and parks as well as musicians and entertainers. We also hold bingo evenings which are helped out by our residents families. We also have a local pub nearby which the residents enjoy visiting from time to time for a spot of lunch or sitting in the gardens in the summer time. We try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests as best is possible. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.

Life at our home

Sketching Club

At our recent sketching club, residents created cartoon sketches of each other with some very amusing results – no one’s feelings were hurt and a great deal of banter followed!

Games Afternoon

The perfect example of concentration and banter from our dominoes professionals, and on the draughts board, Harry is a master tactician.

Music in Mind

Regular visitors to Sherwood Lodge – Ian and Al (better known as 'Music in Mind') – can be seen entertaining Bill, Veronica, Sandra and Maddie. Music in Mind are a very energetic duo and residents really enjoy their cheeky humour and singalongs. An encore is demanded every time they visit.
