Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lynn Marsland & Kerry Smith

Lynn and Kerry make up our energetic, spontaneous and fun-loving activities team. They see residents as an extension of their family and thoroughly enjoy the variety and rewards the job brings. 

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.

Relaxation & Pampering

Once a fortnight, after breakfast, Lynn and Kerry sit down with the ladies and provide a morning filled with relaxing hand massages and pampering. All the ladies really do enjoy getting their morning of pampering, which is shortly followed by morning coffee.

Outdoor Games

Residents spent the morning having lots of laughter and fun as a game of giant skittles was taking place in the courtyard. Even some of the staff couldn’t resist and had to get involved with all the fun and joy. The morning really was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Walks in the Communiy

Our most recent weekly walk was through the local nature reserve and the horse track. The weather was lovely and sunny and residents enjoyed watching the horses roaming in the fields whilst their owners were preparing the stables for the cold weather returning.

Summer Jazz Party

Every summer, we hold a themed party for all the residents, relatives and staff. This year, it was all about that jazz, with a black and white dress code in place, and with the reception and lounge transformed into a jazz bar. Everybody really was getting into the jazz spirit! 

A live performance from local jazz singer, Karen Williams, was shortly followed by games, which were organised by staff members. A delicious spread of various sweet and savory snacks were prepared by our very talented chefs as well. Staff were also on hand to serve various cocktails, including the classic martini. The afternoon really was enjoyed by all!
