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.

Knit & Natter Group

We host a knit & natter group once a week in the lounge. Residents are able to knit whatever they fancy, such as scarfs, blankets and knitted animals, whilst enjoying a good ol' natter over a cup of tea, cake and biscuits.

Enjoying the Sunshine!

Everybody had a great time enjoying the beautiful sunshine over the May bank holiday. Residents could be found playing games, reading the morning newspapers and all round relaxing in the courtyards, gardens and the grounds.

Barry's Wish

Resident, Barry, has always wanted to sing with the King of Rock 'n' Roll himself, and staff members at Wimborne wanted to make this wish a reality. They contacted a local entertainer, who provided all the karaoke equipment we needed.

Our very talented Gardener and Maintenance Assistance also dressed up as Elvis along with Barry. Barry was over the moon that his wish came true and he was able to sing the afternoon away along to Elvis's classics.

The afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by all staff, Barry's family and also fellow residents.
