Meet our Activities Coordinator, Stacey Davies

Stacey has been with Southerndown since 2013.

There is always something happening here and its never dull. We have our own choir and often invite the schools singing clubs and professional choir groups to join us. Peter and Winston are our pet Rabbits and provide many adventures for us, particularly when they escape. We have gardening groups, trips out in the mini bus, quiz days and art therapy amongst the many things we enjoy to do.

I get so much pleasure seeing the residents happy and staff joining in with them.

Activities at Southerndown

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.

National Real Bread Week

Everyone at Southerndown has enjoyed taking part in National Real Bread week. Residents and staff alike have all been showing off their fantastic baking skills. We made and taste-tested many different types of bread, including soda bread, gingerbread, multigrain, cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, poppy seed, and bay leaf garlic and herbs, to list but a few.

Snow Much Fun

Residents and staff alike had such an amazing time in the snow; they decided to make the most of it and build their very own snowman.

We all had such good fun spending so much time in the snow. When our snowman was complete, we warmed up with hot chocolate topped with cream and marshmallows.

What a wonderful way to spend a cold winter day!

Christmas Tree Festival

We have entered a tree into Chipping Norton’s Christmas Tree Festival; residents here at Southerndown have named the tree 'Golden Oldies’. We have spent the last week hand making all of the decorations out of pasta shells, leaves and cones, spraying them gold and glittering them up. We have made gold stars to hang on the tree, and have wrote our fondest memories of Christmas on the stars. We took a group of residents to a methodist church to decorate the tree – and it looks amazing!

The Chippy Swifts

Southerndown is a proud sponsor of the under 12's football team, Chippy Swifts, which has enabled them to buy their new training jackets.

The team visited us at Southerndown before a recent match and we were all excited to get a first look at their new kit.

We can’t wait until the weather gets warmer so we can go and watch them play at their home ground.

A Double Celebration

Southerndown had a double celebration recently, when we celebrated Barchester's 25th anniversary and unveiled the look of our new 'wow factor' home, both of which were a hit with residents, loved ones and visitors alike.

What an amazing way to spend the day – plenty of fantastic food, so many friends and family members among us and entertainment from fan favourite, Tristan.
