Knit a Square at Richmond Painswick

12th February 2014


The ‘Knit and Natter’ Group in the Care Home recently received a lovely letter from ‘knit a square’, a charity working in South Africa helping make vulnerable children warm . Last year we sent some little jumpers for premature babies, knitted by residents with the help of volunteer Barbara who gives up her time to attend Knit and Natter each week. This February we are calling on ALL residents/staff who can knit to give up some time to knit a square. These will be sent over to South Africa and made into blankets for vulnerable or orphaned children. Squares must be 20 x 20cm (8x8in), they can be fancy or simple. Each blanket uses 35 squares!. All knitting equipment can be provided at knit and natter sessions so you just need to turn up and ‘knit a square’.

Knit and Natter is held in the Care Home every Wednesday at 2.30pm


At 82 Richmond Nantwich's Driver finally retires!

13th February 2014

At 82 Richmond Nantwich's Driver finally retires!

Residents and staff said a very fond farewell to Village
Driver, Bryan Burchell on Friday 7th February as he finally retired
from Richmond Village Nantwich.

At 82 years old, Bryan clocked up an impressive 17 years at
Richmond Nantwich, but his time at the Village is not over yet as he also owns
an Apartment where he lives with his wife Maru. Indeed, it was whilst working
as the Village’s Project Manager as it was being built that Bryan decided he
would like to make it his home as well as his workplace!

Village Manager Lynne Griffin presented Bryan with a hamper
on behalf of Richmond Villages and also over £400 which had been collected by
staff and grateful residents for all his kindness and hard work over the years.

“Bryan will be missed “Lynne remarked, “It will be strange
after such a long time, to not see him driving the Richmond vehicles around the
town or catch him doing his favourite crossword when he had a few minutes

Village Advisor Nicola Tooke added “We will miss Bryan and
we all hope that he can now enjoy his retirement, and maybe get the chance to
finish a crossword at his leisure!”

Painswick Stroke Club at Richmond Village

Painswick Stroke Association meet in the Auditorium at Richmond Painswick

Many people who’ve been affected by stroke find help and support from others who have had similar experiences. Local stroke support clubs and groups offer invaluable peer and social support. Through regular meetings and a programme of activities, they invite people to come together, share experiences, regain confidence, relearn skills, and try out new things.

Stroke support clubs and groups are usually run by volunteers. They meet in a variety of places but aim to provide parking facilities, be wheelchair accessible and have space for activities. Refreshments are always available. They rely on donations and fundraising to fund their activities.

There are over 500 clubs and groups supporting people affected by stroke across the UK. Most are independent stroke charities with many choosing to affiliate to the Stroke Association. Lots are Stroke Association Voluntary Groups run by our volunteers as part of the Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke model.

Penultimate Tuesday of each month 2:00pm to 4:00pm at Richmond Painswick Auditorium

'Tyntesfield' Talk by the National Trust at Richmond Painswick

Monday 24 February

Tyntesfield was saved as a result of an appeal by National Trust in 2002, when it was announced that Lord Wraxall’s estate and house had been put on the market and the contents were to be sold by public auction. It was regarded as the last major High Victorian house and estate in private hands to have survived in a largely unaltered state and still with much of its original furnishings.
