How Residents Spend Their Day2019-02-20T15:44:13+00:00

Larchmere has strong community links and monthly services are held by our local vicar and a group of local ladies and gentlemen who sing hymns and conduct a simple service.  Many of our residents enjoy a regular trip to the local pub The Bell and Jorrocks for lunch and the local primary school children visit regularly to spend time with our residents, especially at Christmas when they perform and sing carols.

At Larchmere there is a wide range of activities available every day and regular outings and entertainment are organised by our Activities Co-ordinator.

  • Going for walks
  • Poetry Reading
  • Flower arranging
  • Knitting
  • Reading
  • Discussing the news and reminiscing
  • Painting and drawing
  • Gardening Club

  • Trivia quizzes and crosswords
  • Playing board games
  • Playing out door summer games (weather permitting)
