Activities Galore at Melbourne

A whole range of pastimes have been 'going on' at Melbourne House ............................

Not to be daunted by the wet weather, volunteer flower  arranger Jan Hayes visits to help the residents prepare some table decorations for Easter. Pictured below resident Irene with her display.

Exercise bands are not just for the youngsters! Amazing what you can do with chair exercises and the help of instructor Ross who came to inspire........

Pictured Madelaine and Irene with  carer.


Music is very popular at Melbourne and this singer Amy Bird from bluebell entertainment, especially so. The residents loved it as she mingled in and seemed to be singing individually to each and every one of them. The 1940's costume was fab too and added to the spectacle.


Music and dance gives the best of both worlds - uplifting and some movement too.  Staff get involved and enjoy it too. Carer Jeana helps residents to 'get dancin' (she is a bit of a rock n roll queen in her spare time!)

Residents Create Christmas Cards

Inspiration came from Melbourne's Activity Coordinator Trayce Pullen and The Sherwood Press Group for this recent creative activity;


Residents showed  their flare and skill as they got together with Sherwood Press to make their own Christmas Cards.

Head Designer from the Sherwood Press Group selected his favourite designs whilst creative leader Anna provided motivation and creativity. Pictured Above; Residents and staff get creative with Anna of Sherwood Press, resident Marjorie, Trayce Pullen - Activity Co-ordinator, resident Jean, Gillian (friend of Melbourne House) resident Ivy

The best designs were selected to go to print and be packaged for sale in order to raise money for the residents fund. As well as giving their time and skills, all materials were donated by the Sherwood Group, we thank them for their generosity.

Cards are on sale now at Melbourne House. Pictured the chosen designs
