Coffee morningsMonthly social activities include outings, whist drives, coffee mornings and other events organised by Friends of Abbeyfield and the House Manager.

Armchair exercises 

Every Tuesday morning at 10.45am our residents gather in the communal lounge to work out in the comfort of a chair. The tutor is aware that everyone has limitations and you are given many different exercises to accommodate different abilities. It is a low-level activity which lasts approx 1 hour and is always well attended with relaxing music playing in the background, there is always time for a coffee and a chat before or after the class. We even had Radio Leicester come and attend our class as it is so popular!

Art group and Knit and Natter!

On a Wednesday morning the crafters gather in our light and bright conservatory room. We have a team of 4-5 volunteers who have various skills and crafts, our residents have been known to make bunting, clay modelling, card making amongst other things such as watercolour painting, oils and landscapes. This class runs alongside our knit and natter group who are an army of knitters who have made blankets for refugees, scarves for charity and even a helped with the Abbeyfield project of making a baby blanket for the royal baby. Its a lively, friendly group where you can have a go at anything.
