Enjoy a full, enriching life at Lavenders

There is never any need to feel bored at Lavenders! Our energetic and enthusiastic Activity Co-ordinators offer a full and broad range of activities to suit all tastes and interests

Lavenders 19 Hi Res

We are incredibly fortunate to have our beautiful gardens to enjoy alongside of plenty of indoor space here at Lavenders, but we also offer a broad range of organised activities to keep everyone on their toes, both physically and mentally.

Our two activity co-ordinators have created a tailored schedule of events that includes everything from local school visits and trips out in our minibus to whist drives, bingo, poetry events and exercise sessions.

You’ll find more details about our events and activities in our regular newsletters, which you can read here and if you’d like to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact our Activities Co-ordinator, Adele on 01732 844744 or by emailing us using the contact form below.

Keeping active
Dancing, chair-based music and movement exercises, gardening, table tennis tournaments, bowls and darts… if you want to keep moving, we’ll encourage it, thanks to a busy activities schedule aimed at keeping residents mobile and as flexible as possible. Plus, we have three acres of beautiful landscaped gardens to enjoy, too.


Busy minds
Have a hobby you love? We’ll encourage you to keep it up. We offer everything from flower arranging and arts and crafts to choir singing, whist and dominoes and quizzes. If there’s something you’d like to see on our schedule, we’ll do our best to accommodate you.


The best kind of therapy
While pets are not allowed at Lavenders we are more than happy to arrange a special pet visit for you if you’re missing your furry friend. We also have regular sessions with a pet therapy dog.


Pamper time
It’s not only the visiting pets who enjoy a bit of fuss and pampering here at Lavenders: we have regular beauty sessions here to ensure that everyone looks and feels fabulous. And we have a hairdresser visiting our ground floor salon twice a week – but you’re welcome to invite your own stylist to visit, too


Regular professional entertainment
Twice a month we invite professional entertainers to Lavenders to sing, dance and entertain us all. In the past we’ve enjoyed everything from local dance troupes and drama societies to small singing groups and musicians.


Parties and celebrations
Birthdays and other big celebrations are always marked with festivities and you are welcome to book out one of the sitting rooms if you wish to invite family and friends to visit and celebrate with you.


Day trips
We are really lucky to have our very own minibus, which is fully adapted for wheelchair users. This means that we regularly venture out to venues of our residents’ choice. Pub lunches, river trips, days out at the seaside… have wheels, will travel is our motto, and everyone really looks forward to our outdoor adventures.


Visits with our neighbours
We have close links with local schools and enjoy regular visits for performances, afternoon teas and celebrations. Our residents particularly enjoy heading out in the minibus to watch the annual nativity plays and we invite young people to come and visit us here, too.

We look forward to welcoming you
