Hobbycraft Gets Tunbridge Wells Crafting

By Sarah Jane03 Oct 2012

Some of the older generation living in Tunbrige Wells have had the chance to demonstrate their creative side, when they were invited to take part in a craft session at their local Hobbycraft store.

Some of the older generation living in Tunbrige Wells have had the chance to demonstrate their creative side, when they were invited to take part in a craft session at their local Hobbycraft store.

The residents of Mount Ephraim House ventured down to the art and crafts store accompanied by staff from the care home, where they were encouraged to make a collage on a canvas.

Hobbycraft ran the event as part of its ‘craft in the community’ ethos, which encourages children, community groups such as Scouts and Brownies, and residential homes to visit the store and have a go at various activities.

Marilyn Bridger, activities co-ordinator at Mount Ephraim House said: “Everyone that took part in the trip really enjoyed it and produced some amazing work. We really believe in providing interactive activities that will keep our residents active both mentally and physically.

Louise McCloud, manager of the Tunbridge Wells Hobbycraft store, added: “However small the activity, people seem to really enjoy what we are offering – it really gets the creative juices flowing! We were very pleased to be able to host a visit from Mount Ephraim House as it’s always a pleasure to see visitors enjoy themselves so much.”
