News & Activities January 2023

Message from Nicola

I do hope everyone had a great Christmas, I know we all did here at Nettlestead. I like to take this opportunity to wish you all a healthy 2023. As we welcome in the New Year, we also welcome Julie to her new position as Assistant Manager. Julie has been with Nettlestead for over 10 years and we are delighted to have her join the management team. Congratulations Julie.


We welcomed our new resident Josie Lydford in November and she enjoyed her first Christmas with us. Helena Waysluk also enjoyed her first Christmas with us, having moved into Nettlestead in August.



We love and appreciate hearing your feedback and reviews and ask if you could spare a few minutes to post a five star review on There is also a bottle of wine for all those who publish their review, we will even provide a straw for the wine! A huge THANK YOU to those family members who have already submitted theirs.



It’s no longer necessary to wear masks within the home however as it’s flu season, if you feel you have any symptoms of flu then we kindly request you wear facemasks. Of course, if you wish to continue to wear masks regardless when you visit then please do so.
