At Stanley Grange, we run a comprehensive programme of activities based on the needs, wants and recommendations of our residents. Our core activities, which occur weekly, form the foundation of what we offer. These sessions include, Singing, Bowling, Swimming, Dancing, Woodworking, Walking, Drumming and Crafts.
In addition to this, we also run activities on an as and when basis. Some of the highlights have been Cookery classes with Fresh Beginnings plus trips to: The World of Beatrix Potter; Football Matches; Rugby Matches; Museums and Days out at the Seaside. We have many more trips planned over the coming months including the Coronation Street Tour, Criche Tramway Village and Chill Factor e.
The great news is, our activities aren’t just for Stanley Grange residents. We’re always looking to make friends and welcome anyone who would like to come along. For more information please contact Liam at firstname.lastname@example.org
The rural situation and environment of Stanley Grange provides a natural, green world of leisure and learning opportunities. The woodland area is home to a new sensory garden with three huge, outdoor musical instruments and there are wheelchair and bicycle friendly paths that residents and visitors can enjoy for outdoor activities.
The Garden Centre sells a wide range of hardy perennials and seasonal plants which are grown by green fingered residents who also use allotment plots, to grow their own produce, which they can take home to cook.
In their homes, residents enjoy music sessions, group crafting activities, movie nights, cooking classes, and more recently the addition of Funtime Friday. Check it out every Friday at 1pm here.
Stanley Grange residents are active members of their local community thanks to a diverse and creative network of partnerships with local agencies both within the community and outside in the local area. This helps ensure that a range of leisure, lifestyle and learning opportunities are available to residents.
Individually and in groups, residents also enjoy day trips to local towns, weekly shopping trips, visiting their families and using public transport to meet friends for coffee. More adventurous residents have experienced skydiving, walking from Blackpool to Stanley Grange and enjoy taking holidays and breaks away.
Off-site activities and programmes are as diverse as the interests of the residents and the Stanley Grange minibus, made possible by generous donations from BASS and The National Lottery Fund, is always off on an adventure somewhere
