Special Visitor at Richmond Nantwich

Residents at Richmond Nantwich were visited by Wistaston Rose Queen Emma Horne recently who is busy raising awareness and much needed funds for her chosen charity Diabetes UK.

There has been a Rose Queen in Wistaston for as long as people can remember and Emma has been tirelessly raising money for her charity over the past months whilst also being a true ambassador for St Mary’s Church in Wistaston where Jane-Ann Stubbs, Head of Activities is involved.

Emma shared tea and cakes with the residents and chatted to them about her role and the work she does remarking that she enjoys it immensely especially “Visiting places like Richmond Village”. Jane- Ann remarked “It is lovely when Emma comes to visit us; she is always so chatty and enthusiastic about her role as Rose Queen and we look forward to her visiting again soon.”

Consider a relaxing break at Richmond Bede Village

We all need a break...

WOULDN’T IT BE NICE TO FIND A HOLIDAY LOCATION FREE OF STRESS, AND ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA SUPPORT NEEDED?

Sometimes the prospect of a holiday at a conventional hotel just isn’t quite suitable. The difference with Richmond Retreats is the reassurance that we have a care team on site 24 hours a day who can provide bespoke care packages by prior arrangement.

To find out more about our site in Warwickshire, please call them on 024 76645544.


Book Worms at Richmond Nantwich

Book Worms at Richmond Nantwich

Last Christmas we were surprised and delighted to receive handfuls of Christmas cards made by
one of the classes at Leighton Academy in Crewe. This gesture touched many people’s hearts and recently we have been able to say a small thank you to some of the children involved by inviting them to Richmond Nantwich. They also brought their reading books and treated Residents of the Village to an afternoon of story-telling following which the children were awarded certificates for
being excellent “Book Worms”!

Former teachers Miss Margaret Wooldridge of Crewe Grammar School and Mrs Barbara Jackson from Stourbridge were two of the Village Residents involved. Mrs Jackson remarked “We
had a super afternoon listening to the very talented children and hope theycome back to see us soon.”


Hedgehog friendly at Richmond Bede Village

Hedgehog friendly at Richmond Bede Village

Hedgehogs are every gardener’s friend, as they eat snails, slugs and insects... all helping to keep the gardens at Bede Village looking beautiful throughout the year!

Hedgehogs usually hibernate between November and mid March and animals must have enough fat reserves to survive hibernation.

If you'd like to help feed our friendly little chums, please follow these basic food guidelines:

Food and fresh water will encourage hedgehogs to return. Leave out foods like minced meat, tinned dog or cat food (not fish-based), crushed cat biscuits, or chopped boiled eggs. Specialist hedgehog food can also be bought from wild bird food suppliers. Never feed hedgehogs milk as it can cause diarrhoea; instead provide plain, fresh water in a shallow bowl.

Generations come together at Richmond Nantwich

We have recently had the pleasure of welcoming Frances Donkin, daughter of one of our residents and the lady behind Rhythm Time Cheshire; music classes for babies and pre-school
children. Some of the lovely mums and babies who attend the classes each week came along to Richmond Nantwich and what a fantastic afternoon it was with all generations in one room having a wonderful time together. There were smiles all round and even our Maintenance guy Gary Lawton was in on the act.

Thank you from all of us here at Richmond Nantwich - we hope to see you all again very soon.
