This week is especially designed for senior citizens looking for a break in lovely surroundings and good company. Great care is taken to devise a programme that offers something for everyone: a mixture of crafts, talks, films and entertainment, together with plenty of opportunities to rest and relax, There are also simple chapel services throughout the week, for those who wish to take part. It seems to work! Here are some of the comments from participants in previous Summer Breaks: “Everything was lovely!”; “Peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, very welcoming but no pressure to do anything you don’t want to”; “I particularly valued being able to join in daily worship of a simple but meaningful kind”.
Revd Anna Garvie will be your companion for the week, alongside members of the Ammerdown team. Anna is an Anglican priest and a trained spiritual director and art therapist. She retired in 2016 as a healthcare chaplain.
