Firstly, let me say that I am really looking forward to our Village Centre opening in Autumn this year. But I thought that I would just let you know a little bit about myself.
I’m married to David and have three wonderful children Jakob, 21 Milli, 18 and Joel 8.I was born in West Yorkshire, which I love and regularly return to as my mum and dad are still living there.
My hobbies include football- and yes I am a Liverpool supporter, I find running clears my head, and I read when I can but most of my spare time is spent with my family.
I have a traditional nursing background and trained at Dewsbury Hospital, and qualified in 1996 as a registered general nurse. Since then I have remained in the care sector and primarily managed care homes, working for small and large corporate companies as well as private sector companies.
I’m really excited to be starting something from scratch with Richmond Village Aston on Trent. I am used to running care homes to the highest standards and am looking forward carrying on and maintaining Richmond Village’s superb reputation for providing top quality care.
I’m looking forward to helping build the community ensuring that we are the best place for people to retire to in South Derbyshire.
Head of Maintenance/Deputy Manager
Having worked for Richmond Village Northampton for 12 months I was keen to continue with the company and was delighted to be offered the position of Head Of Maintenance at Aston On Trent.
I have relocating my family from Northampton to Aston on Trent. I love spending time with my family especially my grandson. I am also an avid Manchester United supporter and have enjoyed playing golf since the age of 4.
I have 32 years experience in the building trade and had my own company, but due to ill health I decided it was time for a different challenge at this point I was lucky enough to join Richmond Villages for a better work life balance.
Registered Care Manager
It is a real pleasure to be managing the Care Home at Richmond Aston on Trent.
I am a Registered General Nurse and have worked in both acute and Social Care settings. While practicing in acute services I worked across various specialties, including Urology, Orthopaedics, Emergency and Intensive Care and Oncology. I have been working in clinical management positions in Care Home and Respite services since 2014. I am passionate about quality assurance and service development- the chance to be part of building an outstanding care environment from scratch is a dream job!
In my spare time I am a Trustee of a local hospice and a Public Governor for Derby Community Health Services. I am also starting a Master of Public Health course in January. My hobbies include cooking, reading and walking my dog. I also love to travel and learn different languages and cultures.
Domiciliary Care Manager
I manage the domiciliary care team, who provide care within the individual resident’s own apartments. I have over 30 years experience within health & social care in a variety of settings. I work within the care sector as I am passionate about good quality care and I want the people that I care for to be safe, well supported & treated with dignity.
I am one of Richmond Aston’s ambassadors for our Dementia & Wellbeing Network and am proud to be involved in the building of a dementia friendly community so that people are able to live well with dementia.
I have been married for 36 years and have 2 children and 2 grandsons. I love to watch sport (especially football & rugby union) and travelling.
Senior Village Adviser
It’s fair to say I am not a "newbie" to Richmond Villages. As the Northampton Senior Sales Adviser I have enjoyed almost 6 years working with a great team and embracing the Richmond values. Here at Aston-on-Trent, very little has changed in that respect. I am still working with a great team and I am still embracing Richmond values, albeit in a new and very exciting environment.
Work aside, I still enjoy the good things life has to offer. My family, my dogs and travel are all important to me (in that order) as is my voluntary work on the local parish council. It is important for me to feel like I contribute and ‘make a difference’, something I carry through into my work as well as my personal life.
Originally from Chester I set up my home in the Midlands with my husband and two children more than a decade ago. It is here, the very heart of our wonderful country that I now call home. When you see for yourself what our village has to offer, not just in terms of facilities and five star residential care, but also of its environment, I envisage many of you will feel the same. I sincerely look forward to meeting some of you.
Head of Activities
Hello, my name is Tracey Stinchcombe and I am delighted to be Head of Activities at Richmond Village Aston on Trent.
My enthusiasm and talent for the visual arts and textiles, combined with my passion for theatre led to a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Creative Arts. I have worked in the creative industries since graduation including both commercial and domestic interior design and retail display design. After a break to raise two sons and a daughter I volunteered as an artist to work at Headway, the brain injury association. I recognised during this role the overwhelming benefits of the creative process for anyone struggling with illness, mental health or living with a disability. For the last seven years I have been working with adults with a wide range of disabilities, inspiring and facilitating art activities and producing theatrical shows and exhibitions.
My new position at Richmond Village will include many more varied activities. At the centre of the role is providing a schedule of person-led activities which are stimulating and rewarding, including socialising, trying new things and always reaching one’s full potential.
I am currently a member of Derby Triathlon Club and particularly enjoy taking part in open water swimming, triathlons and running events. I still make art myself, always have a sewing project on the go and enjoy a good film.
I am proud to be part of the team at Richmond Village Aston on Trent who strive to deliver the very highest standards of care.
I have worked in hospitality since the age of 16, training in a 4* hotel in South London. I have lived and worked in Paris and various destinations in England. Also pursuing solo business venture, including a small restaurant in a market town and a county pub.
I have always held a passion for helping others, my previous role was a support worker for young and challenging adults. This opportunity to deliver hospitality in a caring environment was too good to miss.
About me I break and school horses for show jumping and dressage. I spend a lot of tome with my children and I also enjoy swimming and country walks.
I was born in Blackpool but moved to Nottinghamshire when I was just two years old, where I now live with my wife Leigh and two boys Dylan aged 13 and Tyler aged 8. I graduated in Sports Science and Leisure management and began working as a lifeguard twenty years ago, before moving into Leisure Centre and now Spa management.
My main hobby is football and I still try to play for my local veterans side, but most of my spare time is now taken up acting as the taxi driver for the boys various sporting and leisure pursuits. We all love our family holidays whether at home or abroad as long as there is the sea or a pool to play around in.
I have seen the Spa take shape over the past few months and am both excited and committed to making it a relaxing and stimulating area for our residents to spend their time.
I am thrilled to be the newly appointed Administration Manager for Richmond Village Aston on Trent and am looking forward to meeting everyone in November.
I am married to Lee and have four cats Freddy, Alfred, Harry and Arthur, I love all animals.
In my free time I enjoy dining out, shopping (especially for shoes!) fishing and squash.
Having spent most of my career working in care homes I am really looking forward to a change of setting in a retirement village. I have high standards and as such I am keen to build a strong administration team from the outset.
