Richmond Nantwich wins 1st Prize with Vintage Tearoom

The Reception at Richmond Village Nantwich has recently
undergone an amazing transformation after two members of staff visited a
vintage tea shop on the Isle of Wight.

Residents and visitors are now greeted by the sights, sounds
and tastes of the World Wars in their own vintage tearoom, set up in the Village’s
Reception. Mayor of Nantwich, Christine Farrall together with Mr Phil Card of the
Nantwich branch of The Royal British Legion, officially opened the tearoom
which will stay open for the whole of August as part of the Village’s events to
mark the great British Spirit during the two World Wars.

Village Manager Lyne Griffin said “We are delighted that
Cllr Farrall was able to join us; we are very grateful for her support and we would
also like to thank Olwyn Payton from Sainsbury’s for the beautiful bouquet they
presented.”

Village Advisor Nicola Tooke added “We would also like to
thank Phil Card from the Nantwich branch of the Royal British Legion which does
such fabulous work for both past and present servicemen and women. The tearoom is
already proving to be popular; indeed we attended the recent Nantwich Show and
set out our marquee as a vintage tearoom as well. After serving drinks and
homemade cake to over 300 people it was lovely to learn that we had won 1st
prize for the best small non-agricultural stand at the show”

Hospitality Manager Debbie Mercandelli went on to add “We
were so surprised and happy after all our hard work that we hugged the judges!”

Therapy Pony Visits Richmond Northampton

On Thursday 4th August we had a visit from a Therapy Pony called "Magic".  Magic is specially trained to visit Care Homes and Hospitals to give animal therapy to everyone he meets.

Magic arrived in Reception and then went into the lift to our Care Home and visited everyone in either their rooms or in groups in the lounges.

The reaction we got from the residents was amazing. A resident said "that it made his week
and is family would never believe him when he tells them there was a pony in his room".

Magic then came back down to the reception area and greeted all our Village residents before
heading home.

Residents and staff are encouraged to take the Richmond Northampton flag with them on holiday and have their picture taken with the flag.


The flag can only be taken by a resident or member of staff and must be returned safely with photographic evidence.  Once the flag has been on its travels over the next couple of months we will get a map of the world and pin on the map so we know where the holiday flag has been.
