Activities and Services

We are proud that the design of our home allows several activities to be going on at once without people treading on each others toes, and always strive to ensure boredom is an option you’d be hard pressed to take!                                                                                                                                                           At the William Wilberforce we actively encourage residents to lead active, social and fulfilling lives, and always strive to assist residents to pursue ongoing and new interests. Our dedicated Activities Coordinator is here to ensure that each resident live in a manner that suits them personally.

Group activities – for example painting, fitness, singing, cinema club, knitting – are organised weekly, and those who wish to join in are always welcome, but those who would rather pursue solitary interests in their own time will never be pressured to join in for the sake of it.

Entertainment is also provided regularly by visiting musicians – a weekly concert in our grand piano lounge, for instance – singers, local historians, and children from nearby schools. Trips into Pocklington are easily arranged for residents who wish to take advantage of the shops, art galleries, theatre and cafes on offer nearby.



Visitors are always welcome at any time and are encouraged to join you in social events, activities and outings.
