A Warm Welcome

We would like to say a big welcome to Betty and Stanley 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 Lisa and Lucie who have joined the Nettlestead team – Welcome!!

Thank You

A HUGE thank you to all of our residents for their patience whilst our lift was under repair. As I am sure you all appreciate it is our priority to make sure all equipment is safe and serviced and unfortunately this did take a little longer than expected!

 

Feedback

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.

Activities

Our trip to Herne Bay last month was fantastic. We were very lucky with the weather and all who came along really enjoyed the day and a good time was had by all! 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.
