Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the first Residents to arrive at Glebe House

The 13th January 2019 marked the 50th Anniversary of the first Residents to arrive at Glebe House. Our Director, Peter Clarke, unveiled the plaque to Staff and Residents to mark this very special occasion.

Fantastic Fireworks & A Blazing Bonfire

Our annual Bonfire and Fireworks display was yet again a huge success, with nearly 600 people attending the event.

One visitor described the event as being "utterly spectacular - possibly the best fireworks display I have ever seen!".

Horticulture Social Enterprise Project

We have recently been working on a new 'Social Enterprise' style project with the Residents called 'Perfect Potted Plants'.

They have been growing, from seed, winter Pansies and Violas to sell; with any surplus money from the sale of these going towards buying plants and seeds for next year's project.... to sell hanging baskets/planters.

Through this project Residents are able to learn and develop many new skills, which can be linked into their Education; and now, with the flowers flourishing into a mass of colour and lots of orders coming in, it is proving to be a very fruitful venture.

Narrowboat Week

Both Residents and Staff had lots of fun on board the Narrowboat Holiday.

Look What's Been Growing In Glebe's Garden!

A lot of effort goes into growing fresh fruit and vegetables here at Glebe House, and with all the hot weather our gardens and greenhouses are overflowing with tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic bulbs, lettuces, courgettes and many more!

Residents get the opportunity to work alongside Staff to learn about Horticulture, gaining lots of new skills and qualifications.

And the best part..... it all makes its way to the GH Kitchen for the whole Community to enjoy!

Glebe's Got Talent 2018

Back by popular demand... Glebe's Got Talent!!!

We have a lot of very talented people here at Glebe House and what better way to show case that, and bring the Community together, than a fun evening of performances by both Residents and Staff. There was rapping, beat boxing, singing, musical instruments, dancing and even a Glebe House first... a dog Act!

Well done to everyone who took part.

Welcome To Our Woodlands

The Friends Therapeutic Community Trust has purchased a nearby Woodland for Community trips and training in skills such as Forestry Management.

Recreational, Educational and Environmental - There is huge potential for offering enhancing experiences to the young people.

Glebe House Through The Seasons

A few photos showing Glebe House and it's grounds through the changing seasons.

Art Projects

The whole Community have been involved in a number of art projects recently. Everyone has made a tile out of clay and once they are fired, these will be made into a sculpture which will be placed in the grounds for everyone to see. Watch this space to see the end result!

Room Makeovers!

We have recently redecorated a couple of rooms in David House and renamed them. The green room is now 'The Brogden Room' named after Geoffrey Brogden who played a major part in setting up Glebe House and the smaller room is now 'The Orchard Room' as it faces our lovely orchard.

The before and after photos are below.

Golf Day!

Great day golfing for some residents and staff as part of the summer programme, only a few golf balls lost!
