On the General Unit our Activities Team host a 7 day week program.
Our aim each day is to provide activities with a holistic approach. The activities can also be driven by the weather too as we like to encourage our residents to come and enjoy the benefits of such wonderful gardens with a walk or group activities in the grounds.
