Here the residents prove that it’s not just Radcliffe Olympic that have the ball skills! Armchair fitness is very varied at the Manor House.
On Sunday 26th March the Radcliffe Olympic U13 Girls’ team were finally able to visit the Manor House. Covid and bad weather has thwarted several attemps to show off the shirts sponsored by the Manor House. The girls arrived after their away match at Edwalton. The Manor House sponsors the away strip for the team. The girls demostrated some of their skills in the garden in front of residents, some of whom watched from inside and others as you can see, braved the elements outside. The Manor House enjoys many visitors, but it is always a joy for both the elderly residents and the young to interact with each other.
Mabel a therapy dog visited the Manor House recently, a calming influence for staff and residents alike.
Residents make fat ball feeders to help the birsds in the Manor House Garden survive the sudden cold snap. One brave resident poses with a snowman.
I hope their aim is good; that ball looks harder than the balloons they were playing with last week!
The residents enjoy a game of balloon Tennis (or is it Badminton?) in the lounge. Who knew that is how you use a fly swat?
On the 18th January Pony Magic brought Dinky a miniature shetland pony to see our residents
Yes that is a pony on the carpet!
Wild Science brought a selection of animals for the residents to interact with. Activities Coordinator Eleni said “the residents really enjoyed the experience and were all very engaged; it was lovely to see”. Below is a resident with Quinn the guinea pig.

The Manor House is proud to announce a new sponsorship deal with the Radcliffe Olympic girls’ U13 football team. the home is sponsoring the away strip which now displays a logo and the Radcliffe Manor House name. By sponsoring the team we are making links between the generations and because our name is on the away shirts, we will be seen accoss the county when the girls are playing away from home. Last year the home sponsored the U10 boys team and our name appears on their home shirts ensuring that locals people are aware of their not for profit care home in the heart of the community.
