Meet our Activities Coordinator, Marie Henshall

Hi, my name is Marie and I'm the Activities Coordinator here at White Lodge. I plan the weekly activities and outings here at the home.

Activities at White Lodge

Our Activities Coordinators here at White Lodge enjoy the fulfillment of helping residents feel important and a part of something. Meaningful moments are created through laughter and comfort. A varied activities programme is offered for the betterment of residents' bodies and minds, including music for health, 'Oomph' sessions and chair Zumba, in addition to coffee and cake groups that all inevitably lead to giggles and old fashioned singalongs. Also, we organise parties, trips out, walks in the country, bus outings and wonderful entertainers to visit our home. A sneaky tipple is always welcomed with cheese and crackers and, at the end of the day, it is important to go home knowing our activities have made a difference.

Summer Fête

We held a Summer Fête on Saturday 30th June; the weather was beautiful and lots of residents, family members and friends turned up.

We had the amazing Brian Slade singing in the garden for us and we also had 'Wings & Talons: The Art of Falconry' visit, which was a big hit. There were also alpacas, a BBQ and lots of stalls.

Everyone had a great time singing along in the sunshine!

Day Trip to Lydiard Park

We recently went on a day trip to the beautiful Lydiard Park just outside Swindon. Staff and residents had a wonderful day enjoying a picnic, visiting in the Church in the grounds and relaxing in the sunshine. The day was topped off with a delicious ice cream to cool us down. Thanks to Gemma, our volunteer, for helping on the day and making it a big success! We can't wait to visit again.

The Peaceful Courtyard

We have a beautiful court yard in our garden which is frequently enjoyed by our residents. It's especially nice when family and friends visit, and we are able to serve a tea trolley spread which can be enjoyed outside. Occasionally we have live singing performances in the garden, it's a lovely space for both quiet. peaceful moments and live activities.

It is happy days at White Lodge as we enjoyed haggis and the Highland Fling. We even braved the sword dance.
