Our qualified , experienced Activities Coordinators enable members to produce a huge range of art, craft and textile work, from painting dramatic sunsets to portraits, drawing cartoon characters to stunning landscapes; modelling papier-mâché monkeys to cardboard sci-fi figures, and embroidering cushion covers to sewing skirts.
We have weekly visits to the Plot to Plate project, an accessible allotment run by Disability Direct. The members learn how to sow seeds, transplant seedlings, look after the young plants and harvest produce. We also use the produce in our cookery lessons.
We facilitate regular cooking sessions, producing biscuits, cakes, savoury dishes etc. encouraging customers to follow a recipe, weigh ingredients etc.
During the summer months we use our mini bus to get out to parks and local attractions.
We are also able to take individuals swimming, to the gym and shopping.
We have an enthusiastic weekly poetry and discussion group who share poems they like, and devise their own poems on a chosen theme.
Other regular activities include Beauty sessions (manicures, face masks etc.), Relaxation Sessions, Nintendo Wii Games, Film afternoons, Needles and natter group, Dancing, Exercise Sessions, Reading Group ‘Talk and Tales’ etc.
We have a number of computers that are available to use for searching the internet, helping with projects, looking up information for themes we are working on etc.
We have weekly lively music & singing sessions. Members can get involved using basic instruments, requesting their favorite songs etc.
