Congratulations

We are delighted to share that our resident David was submitted into a competition to win a trip on the British Airways I360 which he has been lucky enough to win! Quality Care Insurance Services started a project to turn residents dreams into reality by creating ‘Pollards Promise’ and David is the first ever winner. Well done David and have a fantastic day!

Feedback

We would like to remind everyone that positive customer reviews and good online ratings increasingly play a key part in helping us come to the attention of potential clients, and so are always valued by us. However, we recognise how valuable your time is so we are offering a bottle of wine to all online reviewers that take the time to share their opinion with us. These can be posted at www.CareHome.co.uk

 

Stamp Collecting

We are still collecting stamps (new/old and UK/overseas) for the Air Ambulance. I am sure we can all get involved and start collecting for this worthy charity. Please do drop them off the next time you pop in for a visit.

 

Facebook

We now have our facebook page which we would like to encourage you all to go on and share the ‘Priors Mead News’ so if you haven’t already do like our page!

 

Activities

Our residents and visitors thoroughly enjoyed the bake sale on the 22nd September. I think it is fair to say that we all had our fair share of sugar and what a greater cause than to support the Alzheimer’s Society! Thank you to all who popped in and to those who brought in their beautiful cakes to support this great cause which raised £200!!
