A Warm Welcome

We would like to say a big welcome to our new volunteers Emily, Lilly and Charlotte from Dunottar school who are participating in their Duke of Edinburgh awards. We hope you will be very happy working amongst the Priors Mead family. We would also like to welcome our Little Ray of Sunshine crew who i am sure many of you have seen over the past few weeks. The children come and visit on a Tuesday morning and enjoy activities with our residents. Each week is a different theme; music, crafts, baking, bubbles and wrapped up with a sing-a-long – so far this has proved most successful and we have had some really lovely sessions and a lot of smiles by both young and old!

Unfortunately we say farewell to our chiropodist Alex after many years of visiting. However you will be pleased to know her colleague Paula will be taking over and Alex has introduced her to her clients here at Priors Mead ahead of the change!
