Askham Activities

Askham Activities

Here at Askham Village Community we work towards offering our residents as many activities as possible so they feel engaged and happy. Our residents can choose from a variety of activities in which they can participate. From crafts, puzzles and drawing to cooking clubs, knitting clubs and music clubs, our residents have the chance to pursue their hobbies or to discover new ones. As well as having regular clubs and activities that take place on a weekly basis, the Activities team work towards ensuring the residents are engaged in many diverse activities, depending on the period of the year or on the national or international days. Our residents are used to prepare for important days such as Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, Easter, Halloween or Christmas. While decorating the homes, they can also enjoy treats and beverages. Not to forget about the surprises prepared for our residents such as the barbeques done in the summer season or the visits of live bands or of pets or children from other institutions from the neighbourhood.

Our Activities team is busy throughout the year and they ensure our residents don’t get bored easily. The most important part is that for some of these activities residents receive prizes or certificates, as it happened with the Askham Olympics. We also created a tradition around Askham to decorate the homes for the festive season and then award a home for their decorations.

The activities across Askham are a way to make the residents engage with each other but also to let the residents and our staff collaborate and have a lot of fun, as our staff is usually very quickly getting engaged in all their activities!

If you want to see our latest activities, follow us on Facebook where we post a lot of images with the weekly activities! Please also find below just a small selection of the images we have taken over time of some of our activities.
