June Activities at Swimbridge Nursing House

Hello and welcome to our new blog! This is our way of making sure we share all the wonderful things happening at Swimbridge House Nursing Home, which is a 44-bed nursing home with a very homely atmosphere and plenty of personal attention. The home is situated in North-Devon just outside the village of Swimbridge in a rural setting, close to the A361 link road and within five miles from the regional centre of Barnstaple, and seven miles from South Molton.

We’ve been busy in June and have enjoyed plenty of activities in the beautiful weather. We’ve enjoyed a lovely day visiting B&Q for summer plants and stopping off an ice-cream Hockings on the way home.  We also had so much fun making some scrummy jam tarts that were perfect with a lovely cup of tea. Where it has been possible for our residents, we have been on some local walks, had a good sing-a-long as well as a visit from two furry friends.

We also celebrated Royal Ascot, watching the horse racing with some Pims while crafting. We played a game of horse bingo and then bet on the races.

Lots of smiles and laughter had by all!
