Banbury community knitting group
We welcome the newfound knitting group, which is hosted at Highmarket House Care Home, to tackle loneliness in the community and build new friendships with people who have similar interests/hobbies. Everyone brought along the project they were working on and enjoyed showcasing their work to each other, which sparked conversation and inspired others to try something new. This is held fortnightly on a Thursday, 6pm to 8pm in our coffee shop, there is no charge but donations for refreshments are greatly appreciated, proceeds of which will be donated to Alzheimer’s Research UK. To register your interest please email [email protected] or telephone 01295 222650.
Feathered friends make a visit
The residents were treated to a special visit from three owls handled by local expert Alan Chartlett, residents were able to interact and hold the wide-eyed creatures. This was a great opportunity for residents to reminisce about past animal encounters. Animals are a great way of improving relaxation and wellbeing in older people.
