Our dedicated team of activity coordinators offer a wide range of activities and have a passion for interactive activities, so you can be assured of a fun and interactive day, aimed to stimulate the minds of our residents. We also appreciate that some residents who come in may want to share their favourite pastimes and we are open to new ideas and suggestions. With this in mind, we have introduced outings to the local attractions in Oldland Common and families are also welcome to take their loved one out. Some of the wonderful attractions and activities are list below.

Oldland Common

Sitting approximately 8 miles between the two city centres of Bristol and Bath, Oldland Common has a long history, displayed in the local museum. There are two garden centres close by, Chief Trading Post and Fonthill & Lakeside, both with coffee shops.

Willsbridge Mill

The Mill buildings and wooded valley are steeped in history and the woodland is a small part of the ancient Kingswood Forest. There are peaceful walks in the forest, some of which are wheelchair friendly, that can be taken with friends and family.

Avon Valley Railway

Just a short distance away you will find Avon Valley Railway, which attracts many steam railway enthusiasts as well as families, offering short railway journeys throughout the year. There is a café that serves cakes and sandwiches, which can be either eaten outside on the station platform and covered terrace or inside in a stationery dining carriage.This is a great place to revive old memories of the steam train era.

Willsbridge Valley

On the edge of Bristol, this is an oasis of wildlife amongst modern housing estates. The valley was once the site of milling, quarrying and a coal dramway. The woodlands are at their best in spring, full of bluebells, red campion and the sounds of birdsong. There are wheelchair accessible paths and a wealth of wildlife to see, with a heritage sculpture trail and a wildlife garden.This is another great place to visit with your family.

Keynsham Action Network (KAN)

Originally set up by local GP Dr William House,  KAN is all about empowering people to build community, to promote wellbeing in residents in and around Keynsham & Saltford. They do this by holding networking events (and encouraging others to hold similar events) at which communication and collaboration between individuals and voluntary groups can be facilitated with a view to greater mutual understanding, better use of resources and social inclusion.

Keynsham Leisure Centre

After a £9.5m refurbishment, Keynsham Leisure Centre hosts a variety of quality fitness facilities and leisure activities to help you keep a social, active and lead a healthy lifestyle. From fundamental fitness classes to classes for older adults, there is something to suit everyone.
