Activities and Events


Entertaining our clients is extremely important and alongside everyday activities such as board games,TV and cards we host a series of special events such as cup cake making competitions and coffee mornings. We often have local entertainers drop in and volunteers to ensure the clients are never short of something to do.

What’s more, your family and friends are welcome to visit you at any time – we even encourage them to join in with our activities! There’s nothing nicer than settling down to watch one of those old classic movies with your loved ones on one of our regular film afternoons.

Birthdays and special occasions are celebrated with family and friends encouraged to join in the fun.

We also have good relationships with local GPs, chiropodists, dentists, opticians and the Clergy and hairdresser who regularly pop in.


Fund raising

Over the years we have supported many charities hosting a calendar of events to raise money and to fund additional activities for our residents.This has really enhanced the quality of life for the residents and we will repeat the activities in the coming years including the Alston Lodge Easter Family Bingo, Summer Garden Party and the Christmas Party to round off the year.
