March 2015 Newsletter

Dear Friends, 

February was cold and mainly dry, averaging temperatures of 7 - 12 degrees unlike last year, which was wet and mild, and the wettest winter on record! Despite the chilly weather there were four bus outings; one to Woolacombe beach, second to Simonsbath on Exmoor, the third to Bude, Summerleaze beach; and the fourth to Hartland Quay.

We are beginning to see a lot more of the Sun and the daffodils and crocuses are beginning to flower - Spring is on the way. On the 29th of March the clocks go forward one hour - the start of British Summer Time.

Michelle recently went around and spoke with all the residents to create new four weekly menus for lunchtime and tea-time. We hope you will enjoy these new menus. 

The next of kin questionnaire started in February and is an opportunity to tell us and the CQC, who inspect our home, if the service we provide is good or if there is room for improvement. Michelle, Joyce and June will be coming around to get the residents opinion soon. It is you opportunity to tell us if the service we are providing is good or indifferent and if there is anything you dislike and would like to see changed or made available. All proposals will be considered.
