Oaken Holt residents enjoy trip to Aston Pottery

At Oaken Holt care home in Farmoor, Oxfordshire our residents enjoy regular trips out to local attractions and events as part of our varied activity schedule. This week was no exception when we decided to visit Aston Pottery, a working pottery close to our home. They also have a local shop, café, and stunning gardens. As an added bonus, they carry out demonstrations of pottery making so it was looking to be a good day for all involved.

With much anticipation, we all embarked on our trip in the minibus and enjoyed the drive through the country lanes looking at the trees coming to life and seeing the lambs in the fields. We are really blessed to live in such a beautiful part of England.

After walking round and watching the demonstration looking at the different processes in creating and decorating their pottery, we went to the café and enjoyed afternoon tea and cake. It is great to support a local business and as they bake their cakes and scones daily, they were the perfect and really delicious complement for a refreshing cup of tea and coffee.

Our residents really enjoyed this trip out and it provoked lots of animated conversation about the day. They were really interested in the demonstration and we all learnt new information about pottery making and decoration.

Our professional care team work closely with residents to ensure everyone who wishes to can play an active role in the day to day activities at Oaken Holt and our dedicated Activities Coordinators ensure there is a broad range of events for residents to participate in – from trips out, keep-fit classes to fun and creative activities.

Set within 23 acres of beautiful gardens and parklands in the heart of rural Oxfordshire, Oaken Holt is a magnificent country estate offering residential and nursing care of the very highest standard with our newly built home, Wytham House offering specialist dementia care.
