Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sarah Morley
I’m so blessed to be a part of a great team here at Westvale. I’m really looking forward to making a difference to the residents' lives.
I’m so passionate about my job; I am dedicated to creating a varied activities programme that reflects residents' own likes and dislikes, and ensuring that they can live life to the fullest whilst staying at Westvale.
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.
Life at our home
Residents Enjoy Coffee With Neighbours
Residents of Westvale recently took a trip out to their neighbours at St Phillips where they were welcomed for a community coffee morning. It was open to relatives to attend, everyone enjoyed the home made cakes and treats, whilst chatting with one another about the colourfully decorated biscuits and cakes.
Music was played in the background, as residents chatted to their neighbours and friends. One resident remarked on how much they enjoyed the morning, and how beautiful all of the cakes looked.
Carol Dwyer, General Manager, commented: “A wonderful morning has been had by all. The coffee morning has been such a success and we look forward to our next one.”

Several residents recently enjoyed a trip to the local garden centre, which proved to be a horticultural shopping success enjoyed enjoy ambling around, looking at the lovely flowers, plants and gift-ware before a refreshing trip to the centre’s popular café where they enjoyed tea and a delicious slice of cake.
Over tea everyone shared their personal gardening tips, with some residents enjoying a spot of shopping in the centre’s shop. “Everyone had a lovely visit” commented one resident “It’s a lovely time of the year to come out and see all the plants with their late summer blooms”.
Little Feet from Stepping Stones Nursery
Children from Stepping Stones nursery popped into see our residents to share their summer holiday stories and enjoy a morning of arts and crafts. They enjoyed a lovely morning, singing, story time and were creative with their arts and crafts to the delight of the residents who are looking forward to their return visit later in the month.
Activities Coordinator, Sarah Morley said ““We are very excited about our new intergenerational project and our residents are full of ideas of what activities they want to share with the children when visit us. It was such a lovely way to bridge the gap between the generations and share a morning of fun and laughter and we can’t wait for them to return”.
On Saturday the 10th of August our residents & families enjoyed attending our summer fayre. We were entertained by the singer, Debby, performing hits from the 60’s. There were multiple activities throughout the day, for example, 'Hook the Duck' game, bottle stall, tombola, raffle and many more.
