Activities at West Abbey

Our Activities Coordinators are constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those we support by organising group and individual activities for anyone and everyone to participate in. There are regular outings in the minibus to nearby places of interest, as well as visits from the Donkey sanctuary, musicians and entertainers. We also host evenings such as our Cheese & Wine evenings and BBQ's in the summer, that we encourage relatives to come to. Activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home, so it is essential that our team are dedicated to ensuring that residents are entertained. We encourage our residents to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can to ensure that life at West Abbey is fun and active for all.

Remembrance Day: Part II

We were invited to join the Royal British Legion for their Remembrance Memorial Service at Yeovil Cemetery. Sheila Atkins, who has a lifelong membership for the British Legion, represented West Abbey to lay our wreath. Sheila, her daughter, Ann, and Sarah Purdy, West Abbey’s Activities Coordinator, assisted with the planning of the ‘Life for a Life’ memorial forest tree.

Remembrance Day

Residents from West Abbey were invited to attend an afternoon tea and celebration event put on by Preston Primary School to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

During the afternoon, the school children read poems, danced and sang songs, and some residents joined in with the singing. We ended the commemorations with a beautiful cake made by the children at the school.
