We are excited to enter the second month of the new year! We have a fun filled month ahead of us. We hope you have enjoyed your January as much as we did and we can’t wait
to see you all in February! Also, a really warm welcome to our newest resident, Anne, who joined us as part of the Nettlestead family during January.
Fantastic Memories in January celebrating birthdays and pampering sessions whilst listening to great music!
“Out with the old and in with the new…”
A traditional saying as we close the door on the previous year and open another for the new one.
Here at Nettlestead, we have had a fantastic 2023. We have made many happy memories throughout the year with residents and their families and we intend to create many more this following year.
From all of us here at Nettlestead, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a prosperous new year.
We celebrated Jeanne’s birthday in December!
Santa paid us all a lovely visit as we were all on the nice list! Read More >
A warm welcome to December, the month of festive cheer. Please take care and prepare for the chilly, unpredictable weather we are sure to experience.
November was packed with entertainment, love and laughter and we intend to create much more this month.
As always, we welcome friends and family to join us for Christmas Lunch or Boxing Day Lunch but please let us know if you wish to join us and please tell us if you have any dietary requirements. Read More >
Goodbye October and Hello November! – As the days grow shorter and the nights longer, the cooler weather is upon us. Remember to take care and wrap up to stay warm. November, the penultimate month of the year, brings with it a significant array of events.
First, we commemorate Guy Fawkes Night, which marks the failed attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
We pay our respects this month on Remembrance Day, honouring those who sacrificed their lives in the Line of Duty. Read More >
We hope everybody had a fantastic September! A special and warm welcome to our new resident, Irene, staying with us for respite and another lovely welcome to our new carers Fatima and Alison! Additionally, we are really pleased that Ron has decided to stay with us permanently. Read More >
Goodbye August and Hello September! We’ve made some lovely memories in August and will continue to do so this month.
September is a month of transition. As summer fades away, the leaves start changing colour, and the days get shorter. We begin to prepare for the cooler months ahead. Read More >
Here is a fun fact! – Did you know that August was originally the sixth month of the tenth month Roman Calendar and had just 29 days?! Julius Caesar added 2 extra days when he created the Julian Calendar, by which point the calendar had become 12 months. Read More >
Goodbye June and Welcome July!
It has been a busy June with celebrations. We celebrated Length of Service for many staff, including 5,10 and 20 Years Service.
We also had an amazing night at the Bromley Care Awards where our very own Donna and Chris were amongst 21 finalists. Everyone was a winner that night.
July promises to be a good month also with beautiful weather, a Peaky Blinders Themed Party (fancy dress encouraged but optional) and several birthdays to celebrate. Read More >
Welcome to June everyone!
Just a little reminder to everyone of our Fundraising Quiz Night that is taking place on Friday 16th June at 7pm. We are fundraising on behalf of the Stroke Association and I look forward to welcoming you to our event.
I held my first residents meeting in May and it was found to be beneficial. I plan for the next one to happen in August, however my door is always open.
As soon as I have a date confirmed, I will email you all inviting you. Read More >
