Advent

We would love to welcome you all back, but still have to be careful. If you were thinking of staying please note we have a few requirements to ensure everyone stays safe...

We are very grateful for all the cards, gifts and good wishes that we have received. We have missed all of our regular guests, especially during prayers and meals, and now there is some light at the end of the tunnel!

As before, we are open gently...

The restrictions remain the same as before with one additional change, and we are asking that guests coming to stay will arrange lateral flow tests for themselves. These can be obtained free of charge from NHS England

We would like you to take a test before setting off (on the day you are due to arrive), and then take a second test on day 4 of your stay, if you are with us for a week.

If you are with us for a short time only then please take your second test on the day after you return home.

We thank you in anticipation for your co-operation in helping to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Just to remind you of the conditions still in force...

  • We will be offering 3 rooms at any one time -at least one of which will be a twin or double
  • We ask that you do not travel by public transport
  • Please wear your own mask when around other people
  • If you wish to access the Chapel during your stay you will need to be able to safely use steps outside from the Fire Exit on the corridor in Boarbank - there will be no internal access via the Nursing Home or Terrace at all.
  • If we have an outbreak you will be expected to leave immediately please.
  • Please do not arrive if you have been to a hospital for any reason within 2 weeks of your stay - please let us know
  • Please comply with any current Governmental regulations regarding movement and travel

If you are still reading and still interested we will be very pleased to hear from you.

Please CONTACT US for reservations and information.

I am sure you will be aware that the situation can change almost overnight, and that we may need to revise these arrangements at short notice.

We are cautiously optimistic as we all move gently forward taking care of one another, near and far and we remain very grateful to all our benefactors for their continued generosity to us.

It is, as always, a great encouragement and source of comfort to us to know that we are being thought about, prayed for and supported in practical ways.

We assure you that all families, friends and benefactors are in our thoughts and prayers each day.
We all remain safe and well and hope and pray that you do too.

May the Lord bless you all abundantly as only He can.

With our love

Sr Eileen and the Sisters

Once again, we would like to say an enormous and heartfelt thank you to all our staff, who have worked so hard, and taken such great personal care, to ensure that we have all stayed safe and well so far - thanks be to God. Their team spirit has been wonderful, under very difficult circumstances.

We have been taking advantage of lockdown to make the place look as nice as possible when you able to return - Derek has been busy repainting, and the gardeners have been replanting the beds. The Sisters have been sorting out the archives and tidying rooms that haven’t been sorted out for some time. One of us has even emptied her email inbox!

We are able to organise visitors to the Nursing Home in the Greenhouse and the Nook, and we have built an outside Log Cabin as a Visitor Centre for the Nursing Home, which will make visits by family and friends much easier and more comfortable. The general arrangements for visiting remain the same. Rapid tests have arrived for visitors and these will be used for residents who are not able to go out to the Log Cabin, and to facilitate End-of-Life Care Visits in the Nursing Home.
