The Housekeepers and volunteers arrange a number of activities for the residents including:

A regular exercise and relaxation class is run by volunteers which is very well attended.

The knitting circle,  was started by a resident who had been involved in making blankets for an African Charity before joining The Old House and she has continued knitting for charity with the help of other residents.

Occasional film nights are enjoyed showing popular films e.g. The King’s Speech and Paddington.

Regular coffee mornings organised by volunteers are open to residents and anyone visiting The Old House.

Coach trips to local places of interest where residents can enjoy lunch are arranged e.g. Painshill Park.

A highlight in the summer is a strawberry tea arranged by the staff for resident's family and friends.

The year is completed by a wonderful Christmas party for everyone.
