Activities at Wood Grange Care 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 Wood Grange Care Home

Trip to Four Seasons Garden Centre

Residents from the Willoughby community enjoyed a trip out to the four seasons garden centre in Sleaford, where they enjoyed a walk around the shop then coffee and cake to finish! This was our first visit to the Four Seasons and the residents were impressed, being a little further than our local garden centres residents also enjoyed the views of the countryside.

VE Day celebrations

Wood Grange marked the 79th anniversary of VE Day, a momentous occasion in history celebrating the end of World War II in Europe. We honoured this day with a morning tea, a sing-along of wartime classics, and sharing fascinating facts about this pivotal moment in our shared history. Let's remember and celebrate the bravery and sacrifices of those who fought for freedom and peace.

Residents return to Waterside after flooding

We're thrilled to see Waterside back in action after overcoming the challenges brought by January's floods. And great to see our old friend Gary the Gorilla! Residents were delighted in browsing Waterside's offerings and indulging in some well-deserved refreshments and delicious cakes. Peter said, "it was amazing to see the flood line marked on the wall in the restaurant".

Residents embrace flower power

Residents at Wood Grange Care Home in Bourne celebrated Chelsea Flower Show which took place from 21 to 25 May 2024 - as well as watching the show on TV, they also held their own Chelsea inspired activities for the green-fingered.

Created and run by the Royal Horticultural Society, Chelsea Flower Show is the world’s greatest flower show with stunning garden designs and gorgeous floral displays. 

Cadbury's Virtual Event

Residents across our services had a wonderful time joining Cadbury for an interactive virtual talk on their fascinating 200-year history.

Residents joining learnt interesting facts about the chocolate giant, shared memories, and reminisced about their favourite sweet treats.

It was a heart-warming experience filled with laughter, nostalgia, and plenty of chocolatey goodness!

Darwen the miniature horse visits again!

Brenda and her horse Darwen came to visit the residents at Wood Grange to celebrate the Grand National Event. Darwen brought laughter and smiles, filling the home with horsey happiness. The residents thoroughly enjoyed seeing Darwen as they always do. Later on in the day some of the residents sat to watch the Grand National making their own bets. Well done to both Rosemary’s for their first place win, Harry securing second place and Robina claiming third. They were overjoyed with their well-deserved prizes.
