Communal areas include the sole use of a lounge, dining room, kitchen, toilet facilities within the original Georgian house. All communal areas are access friendly. There are regular weekly activities including art, board games, all-denomination communion, bingo and coffee mornings as well as one-off barbeques, suppers and trips outside Gatchell Oaks (organised by the residents' association). We have a visiting car wash service, chiropodist and hairdresser. We also employ our own support staff to assist with domestic tasks and shopping if required.
