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.





The Bedworth Armistice Parade & Service with Richmond Bede Village

11th November 2016

The Bedworth Armistice Parade & Service with Richmond Bede Village

On Friday 11th November, the Tesco trip will be into Bedworth, instead of Tesco at the Ricoh Arena. You will still be able to visit the Tesco Supermarket in Bedworth, but we thought that some of you may wish to be there for the Bedworth Armistice Parade and Service in the town centre. 

Bedworth in Warwickshire retains the tradition of celebrating Armistice Day at the exact hour, day and month each year. It is now the largest and most famous Armistice Day Parade in Britain. The service is held at the War Memorial in Bedworth's Coventry Road Cemetery in the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire representing H.M.The Queen, the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, invited dignitaries and guests, the citizens of Bedworth and the surrounding towns, and supporters from all over the country who travel just to "be there" on the day.


The parade marches through Bedworth town centre before forming up in the Cemetery for the Armistice service; after which the parade marches along the Rye Piece Ringway where the salute is taken, wheeling left at the Pin Island to re-enter the pedestrian zone and dismisses at The Alms Houses.



For more information about the trips with Richmond Bede Village, please call us on 024 76645544.  




Twiddle Mitts at Richmond Bede Village

14th November 2016

Twiddle Mitts at Richmond Bede Village

Volunteers have been putting their knitting needles to good use, knitting Twiddle Mitts for people with dementia.

In Trefoil Guild, women and men aged 18+ make new friends, travel, explore, serve their communities and help Guiding (and Scouting) thrive across the UK. June Donaldson, 72, has been part of the Trefoil Guild for most of her life, often being involved with things to support her community.

Initially, the Trefoil Guild started making ‘Twiddle Mitts’ as part of a co...mmunity challenge.

What is a Twiddle Mitt, you ask?
They’re a knitted band with items attached and given to a person with dementia, so that they can twiddle with them! They help mental stimulation whilst warming hands. They are simple to make and invaluable to that person.

Dr Gail Steptoe-Warren, friend and Occupational Psychologist at Coventry University then became involved and suggested that June and like-minded ladies from the Almshouse in Bedworth, team together and start making ‘Twiddle Mitts’ for various care homes in Nuneaton and Bedworth

Staff at Richmond Bede Village were delighted this morning when June arrived with 20 Twiddle Mitts for residents within the nursing home. Linda Watson, Village Manager said ‘it’s such a kind and generous gesture, the Mitts are fantastic. We are so grateful to the ladies!’

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.
