ActivitiesWe organise a wide range of leisure and social activities and you are welcome to join in any of the activities that appeal to you. Information about planned events will be displayed in the Firs and on the notice board in the foyer.

We will talk to you about the sort of activities you enjoy and we will try to make sure that the social calendar includes something for everyone. There will be opportunities for you to pursue your own hobbies and interests as well as opportunities to try out new experiences and pastimes.

We have our own library of books and the WVS Library also visits the Firs every three weeks. Films are regularly shown in the Day Centre on a large screen. We have visiting entertainers and music-maker monthly. We arrange trips on a regular basis and we will ask you about places you would like to visit when we are making plans. In the past we have visited shopping centres, gardens and garden centres, river boats, pantomimes, theatres and places of local interest.
