Our recent trip out

old town tripRecently we were very lucky to enjoy a 99 ice cream in the Old town followed by visiting the Bourne to see the Priscilla Macbean lifeboat which was moved there on 15th November 2014. We also saw the newly placed Cyril and Lilian Bishop lifeboat which is opposite in All Saints Church. All of the residents that came really enjoyed this trip which brought back many childhood memories for them.

Holy Communion

Our date for September is the 13th. Anyone who wishes to join in is most welcome in the small lounge. The service is normally about 15 minutes.

Since our last Newsletter we have been very busy in recruiting new staff. As always, it is sad when staff move on but we wish them the best for the future.

You will all be seeing more of Natasha around the building working with our staff. Please talk to her about any concerns that you may have or any changes that you may wish to take place.

We are also looking at refurbishment to some areas. Some rooms have already been re-decorated as they have become empty. We will be re-carpeting the small lounge and the main front stairs shortly and we recently had new windows in our link way corridor that leads into area 3.
