Activities & Events

We employ a full time Activities co-ordinator who organises a different activity each afternoon. The activities range from bingo sessions, card games, dominoes, baking and gardening. She also takes different residents out for shopping trips on a rotational basis. There are trips arranged to garden centres, local parks and a local pub for lunch. Around Christmas time a visit to the pantomime is organised and thoroughly enjoyed by a lot of the residents. In the summer the residents are taken slightly further afield to the zoo etc. Relatives are most welcome to join their loved ones to any of the trips.

We also have outside entertainers to come and entertain our residents. This can include a singer for a Sing-a-long, magic show or a comedy show. Summer Fairs, coffee mornings, Easter Bonnet competition and events to mark special occasions and special birthdays are also held at Ashdale. Residents and Relatives are involved in the planning and organising these events. Residents and Relatives are invited to join The Friends of Ashdale Committee.

Any money raised at these events goes into the Residents’ leisure fund for their benefit.


All relatives, friends and supporters of Ashdale are invited to participate in activities and events. Some of the forthcoming events for this year are listed below:
