Richmond Witney Nurses, Carers and Maintenance Technicians Recruitment Fair

2nd November 2016

Richmond Witney, who are developing a new retirement village at Coral Springs Witney, are holding a Recruitment Fair for Nurses, Carers and Maintenance Technicians to be held at Witney Lakes Resort Witney on Wednesday 2nd November, from 2pm until 8pm.

This event is especially for Nurses, Carers and Maintenance Technicians so that they can understand more about their role within an award winning retirement village.

For nearly 20 years Richmond Villages have been at the forefront of retirement living, offering a combination of a socially active community with the reassurance of first class domiciliary, nursing and dementia care. 

It has been said that Nurses often dismiss the thought of working in an elderly care environment in favour of working in a hospital.  However, when people see the wonderful environment that you can work within and the amazing difference that you can make to someone’s wellbeing, working at a Richmond Village becomes a very appealing proposition.

Throughout the event qualified Nurses, Carers and Maintenance Technicians will have the opportunity to speak to experienced members of Richmond Villages staff to find out more about the village and the roles available. 

In addition to an excellent working environment, Richmond Villages offer highly competitive rates, 20 days holiday plus 8 bank holidays, an in-house training package and support with professional development.

For more information on the event please call Steve Brennan on Tel: 0113 3816 416 or Email: steven.brennan@bupa.com

Silver Surfer

5th November 2016

Silver Surfer

Northampton residents Jean and Barrie Mayne up until 2014 had never used a computer, never mind surfing the internet.  They both felt that they were missing out so they took the plunge and bought an IPad.
 
With many lessons and help of Chris Rayatt Head of Activities at Richmond Northampton both Jean and Barrie now surf the internet, use Apps, Chromecast, Skype, shop online and are now a wiz on Facebook, going live and using messenger.

Last week Jean decided it was time to take another leap and brought an IPhone.  Jean has really taken to it and on Saturday at the Royal and Derngate Theatre took her first ever selfie, checked in and said “feeling excited" whilst waiting for the show to start.

It just goes to show it's never too late to learn.

Remembrance Day at Richmond Nantwich

We were honoured today to have two of our residents lay a wreath for Remembrance Day, with members of the Royal British Legion, Rev Barry Wilson from St Mary's Church in Nantwich and fellow residents , friends and family in attendance.
Mr William Greetham was a pilot with the Royal Air Force and served with both Coastal Command & Transport Command taking part in sorties across Germany. William flew again in a Tiger Moth in 2003 as part of celebrations for his 80th birthday watched by his family and his beloved wife Theodora. William has two daughters, Margaret & Sheila and two sons Kenneth & Michael plus 1 grandson, 3 granddaughters and 3 great grandchildren all of whom are extremely proud of him for the part he has played today. 
Joining William was Mrs Errol Lochhead who helped lay the wreath in memory of her husband Major Malcolm Lochhead of 29 Commando, Plymouth and her eldest son Captain Gavin Lochhead, who sadly lost his life in service whilst serving with the S.A.S in Belize in 1982 at the age of 28.
