News & Activities May 2023

Message from Nicola

I can’t believe how quick May has come around and with it, brings several bank holidays and the King’s Coronation!  In addition to our daily activities, May will be a busy month.


Please feel free to come and join us for the King’s Coronation on the 6th May!

Just a reminder of the Relatives Meeting which will be held on 15th May at 4pm which allows you to bring directly to us what you would like us to be better at; what you feel we do well and what activities you would like to see moving forward.

I welcome your comments and suggestions all the time, but it would be nice to see you personally on the 15th.

April has been a busy month with birthdays, activities and hatching of the ducklings, so we have included some beautiful photos for you to see.

In April we welcomed our new resident, Mrs Marjorie Reeves, to Nettlestead!


The Ducklings came to visit in April!:
