Recruitment Fair exclusively for nurses and carers

5th April 2014

Recruitment Fair exclusively for nurses and carers

Richmond Painswick are holding a Recruitment Fair on Saturday 5th April, 11am – 2pm, especially for nurses and carers so that they can understand more about the role within a small boutique style care home.

Jo Walters, Head of Care comments Nurses and carers often dismiss the thought of working in a care home 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 in a care home becomes a very appealing proposition.”

Throughout the day qualified nurses and carers who are thinking about changing jobs will have the
opportunity to look around the Richmond Painswick care home and speak to Jo and her team to find out more about the roles available. 

For more information on the event please call either Jo Walters or the Village Manager, Laura Taylor, on 01452 810203

It was chocolate heaven recently as over 400 Easter Eggs
were delivered by staff from Richmond Village Nantwich and Sainsbury’s Nantwich

children in the local area.

we work with this Easter.” Lynne Griffin, Village Manager at Richmond Village

Details of Richmond Villages Witney, Oxfordshire announced

Richmond Villages, which designs, develops and operates premium retirement villages across the UK has announced details of its sixth village, which is to be built at Witney, west of Oxford. Once completed it will provide 126 homes for those over 55, and an additional 60 care home beds.

The development follows the company’s acquisition by Bupa last summer, and the success of its other recent new villages, Letcombe Regis also in Oxfordshire, Painswick, Gloucestershire

The new £30 million Richmond Witney will be located at Coral Springs on the junction of Curbridge Road and Thorney Leys, and within close proximity of the town centre.  It will initially comprise 30 independent Village apartments - one and two bedroom apartments with the average size of the two bedrooms being 1,066 sq.ft, 46 Village suites (one and two bedroom) and a care home providing nursing and dementia care.

A full list of property prices will be available from May 1st,but as an indication village suites will start from £225,000 and village apartments from £285,000.  Reservations will also be
taken from this date.

The belief at Richmond Villages is that retirement should be enjoyable and safe, and a positive and active stage in life to look forward to.  Richmond Witney therefore includes all the
facilities that have made its other villages so popular, including a wellness spa with swimming pool and gym, hair and beauty salon, a library, IT room, terrace café, quality restaurant and garden bar, and all set within beautifully landscaped grounds with a bowling green and nature reserve beyond. 

Commented Paddy Brice, managing director of Richmond Villages: “We know from the waiting list for properties at Letcombe Regis that there is a strong demand in West Oxfordshire
for what we offer, and are delighted that construction will start soon. 

“In addition to these new homes which will help meet the growing need from the ageing sector of the community, this new village will create some 150 new and permanent jobs,” he

A marketing suite is due to open on May 1st at Waterloo Walk, High Street, in the centre of Witney town centre when prospective purchasers will have the chance to view the floor plans for the apartments as well as see animated 'fly thrus' of the new retirment village.

A sales launch is taking place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th May at the Witney Four Pillars Hotel.  More details of this will follow shortly
