“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!
