Activities at The Warren

Here at The Warren, our activities team are always very busy thinking of new ways to keep residents active, both physically and mentally. We have regular trips out in the minibus, both locally and further a field, including the London Eye and the Thames River Trip), at least once a week during the summer months. We also enjoy visits from PAT dogs and have professional exercise sessions and live entertainment, which are always popular.

A Special Guest

Irish singer and performer, Daniel O’Donnell, popped in to say hello to residents and staff, much to their surprise.

Our Activities Coordinator, Joy Michell, has been trying to get Daniel to come in for the past 15 years, but he has been unable to due to his busy schedule. However, since he has been up in Norfolk  on tour recently, he kindly agreed to pop in for a visit.

Daniel met with a number of residents in the dining room during lunch and also went to residents’ rooms to say hello. The activities team were very pleased that Daniel was able to visit, and he commented on what a lovely home it was.

Christmas Party

Friday 15th December saw The Warren hold their annual Christmas party for residents and their families. This is an evening of great fun with entertainment from Elvis and a buffet second to none (in fact, it was the best we've ever had).

A big thanks to our Head Chef, Chris, and his team for giving us our fantastic food of three meats and freshly cooked salmon, plus all the other bits and pieces to go with them, which also included three choices of pudding. We, as usual, had a wonderful raffle which, after all expenses, raised £70 for the residents' fund.

Mini Donkeys

Monday saw the mini donkeys arrive at The Warren along with Father Christmas; they were welcomed by both young and old alike. We invited the children along from the Once Upon A Time Nursery in Sprowston to join us and they gave a surprise rendition of 'Jingle Bells' whilst they were here. They also received a gift from the big man himself, to their delight.
