We have an extensive activities programme, which is implemented by our dynamic activities staff. They host monthly “ladies’ afternoons”, which include professional manicures, and regular “men’s afternoons” which often feature some sporting activity.Other activities and entertainment include cooking and games afternoons, while bowls and housie remain our most popular activities. Friday afternoons feature entertainment, lovely food platters and a selection of New Zealand wine.
