The volunteers and manager work closely together to plan social events during the year, some of which include a canal trip on a horse drawn barge in North Wales, trips to the local garden centre for afternoon tea and a BBQ in the summer. Every couple of months we hold a quiz with afternoon tea, with both houses in Chester hosting it alternately. Our residents like this social event as it allows them to meet other residents of Abbeyfield and have a catch up chat. We also host bingo nights and a film club once a month.
Twice a year we have visits from a local Choir who encourage the residents to sing along with them, and also a local theatre group who put on a fabulous production with the cast having many changes of costumes – a very enjoyable evening.
Independently, we have dominos and cards for the residents to use at their will, and once a month at Christleton Road we hold a Coffee Morning (lovely fresh scones made by our House Manager).
