Autumn Fun at Coxhill Manor

There’s been lots going on at Coxhill Manor during Autumn and we don’t let the slightly colder weather dampen our spirits here. Our regular outings continue, thanks to Mike and his Bustler Bus – an invaluable and so much appreciated service which enables us to get and about in the community. Here are just a few of the activities and days out we have recently enjoyed:

Coffee Concerts at Guildford Cathedral
In recent weeks we have visited Guildford Cathedral to enjoy the latest in their series of ‘Coffee Concerts’. The concerts are held in the nave of the cathedral and we enjoy a relaxing coffee and the beauty of the cathedral before the concert starts.

Doris, Joyce, Fred and Marcia were treated to the exquisite musical talents of pupils from Guildford’s Royal Grammar School. Talented soloists and ensembles kept us all spell bound. We all agreed that such talent must be a God given gift.

Lightbox Gallery
John, Sheelagh, Ken, Philip and Lillian have been to another of our regular haunts, the Lightbox Gallery and Museum in Woking and enjoyed self-guided visits around the latest Sean Henry Exhibition. Sean Henry is an internationally recognized sculptor and his exhibition contains over 20 sculptures; impressive and powerful figures of men and women, which left us all drawing our own interpretations. Our particular favourite was the ‘Sleeping Man’ sculpture, which Lilian is still talking about.

The volunteers at the Lightbox are so accommodating and are always on hand to answer questions and educate when we visit. Five of Sean Henrys sculptures are located around Woking Town Centre – which now become a lot more meaningful having learnt about Sean Henry.

Lunch anyone?
And of course a few pub lunches must be thrown in for good measure. Many of our residents love a good pub lunch and in fact it is probably one of the most requested outings here at Coxhill.  The Four Horseshoes in Chobham is rapidly becoming a Coxhill favourite! Warm friendly and attentive service and the food is outstanding. It’s a perfect location with great wheelchair access, and because it’s a local pub it can bring back lots of memories and we all like a good reminisce. The pub is on the edge of Chobham Common, which was once used for military camps and training exercises and used to train men for battle in both World Wars but is now a protected nature reserve.

Ladies that shop and lunch…
and let’s not forget ladies love to shop…! Our resident Karen spent a lovely day in town with Julia enjoying getting some new clothes and other ‘essentials’. Of course, a shopping trip wouldn’t be complete without a nice lunch at Carluccios in the town centre!

At Coxhill Manor care home in Woking we provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 58 residents.
