Charlton Kings is a peaceful suburb of Cheltenham and offers our residents an array of shops and amenities. Our home is only a short walking distance from the local churches, post office, library, shops and coffee shops, making it a great and convenient location for our residents, staff and visitors.

Getting to Charlton King is easy with lots of public transport available and we have a dedicated car park for our visitors.


Monday got off to a wonderful start as the fantastic performers from Tickled Pink Productions gave a superb song and dance show, tap dancing, swift costume changes and lovely songs, to sing a long...resulted in all residents who attended having a very enjoyable time!

Wednesday and we said hello to ‘Rollo’ and ‘Lollipop’ two adorable Shetland ponies that visited the home. Residents faces lit up with pleasure as they were afforded a close encounter with them, enabling residents to touch, stroke and feed the ponies.

Thursday we had another treat as the ‘Silver Threads’ dramatic society visited and provided a slice of old time music hall entertainment, with wonderful songs and amazing costumes it transported us all back to the heyday of the music halls and was immensely enjoyed by all!

🍀Here at the home this week there has been an influx of sudden mysterious sightings of wee leprechauns, easily recognised by their tall green top hats and ginger beards (both for male and females!) They have been making appearances all week in the build up to St Patricks day on the 17th of March. Maybe it was the lively Irish music and dancing that Rosie from musical moments entertained us with on Monday that first lured the ‘little people’ in.
In reminiscing club we talked about St Patrick (he was originally a welsh priest) and Ireland, enjoying a ‘fairy tale’ quiz.
Your starter for ten is: The troll under the bridge is in this story….?

Students from Cheltenham College kindly performed a musical recital for the residents this week; we were all very impressed by the musical talent on display and I would like to give a big thank you to the students and Cheltenham college for providing us with a wonderful afternoon of entertainment!

When the weather is nice (apparently that does happen occasionally), we often take the opportunity to give residents a chance to get out and about. More often than not, this is to Cox’s Meadow in Cheltenham, a beautiful park just a short walk from the home. This week we discovered in our travels, a wonderful wooden sculpture that really had us smiling, so thank you to the mystery carver who made our walk this week that little bit more interesting.
🐎I believe there's been some horse racing going on this week near here so we thought we would join in and have a sweep stake on the Gold Cup today. A fun way to end what has been a fun week. I wish everyone the best of luck as this traditional Irish blessing goes:

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,

The foresight to know where you’re going,

And the insight to know when you’re going too far. 🍀

Answer is...'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'.

As you can see in the photos this week with the wonderful Tanya from G Fitness it was not about we 'can’t can’t' here at the home, but much more what we 'can can'. With our high kicks and armchair exercises, everyone enjoyed themselves so much they hardly noticed how much they were benefiting from all their great effort!
One of the care home favourites Phoebe Appleby was welcomed back and gave us a wonderful performance of songs that lifted everyone’s spirits whilst we enjoyed a good sing a long.

Building up to the horse racing festival in Cheltenham we were not going to miss out on the opportunity to have some horse racing fun of our own. The students visited from Cheltenham college. Playing our own unique game of horse racing, residents were soon shouting (rivalling the famous ‘Cheltenham Roar’)as they encouraged their horse to be the first past the winning post!
