A Warm Welcome

We would like to say a big welcome to Edith and Jean who have joined us at Nettlestead. We hope that you will be very happy and are feeling settled within the Nettlestead family. Please all welcome Diana who has joined Nettlestead as a Night-Carer.


A HUGE congratulations to Trudy who will be celebrating her 104th birthday in June.

Following the recent inspection, we have now received our CQC report which rates our service as Good across all areas. The new report will be published on the CQC website soon and we will also share a copy with everyone. Thank you to everyone who took part or who was interviewed as part of the inspection process.


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


Don’t forget to visit our facebook page if you haven’t already done so. We would encourage you all to go on and have a look at and share ‘Nettlestead News’ and like our Facebook page!


We always strive to provide a full and varied activities programme for our residents, but please let us know if you can think of anything else they might enjoy and we will try to include it.
