Ilminster Recreation Ground adjoins Orchard Vale

Activities are varied. From flower arranging, dominoes, card making and bingo, to cooking, glass painting and Flexercise. There are also groups who visit the home regularly, such as bell ringers, musicians, singing for pleasure and theatre players.

Weekly trips, in the Home’s minibus, visit a variety of locations such as Haynes Motor Museum, garden centres, sea side, Fleet Air Arm Museum, or just a ride through the beautiful surrounding countryside, more often than not involving a cup of tea and slice of cake. Residents make requests to visit their own particular favourites and we try to accommodated these, where possible.
