Activities & Events

We employ two Activities co-ordinators who organise different activities based on resident preferences. 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. In the summer the residents can be taken slightly further afield. 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.

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:


Update: The weather remained hot throughout the afternoon, though the outside area where the stalls were set up was well shaded by trees. £165 was raised for our residents social fund. Everyone who participated had a great time. Many thanks to all those who helped make the event a great success.

All proceeds will be donated to MacMillan cancer support.
