“It’s really comforting to know that our lovely residents are still being thought of at this difficult time for everyone. One resident, Allen, said there are some really kind people out there and he was looking forward to eating lots of chocolate on Sunday (he’s got rather a sweet tooth).”

She added residents were getting their second doses of Covid vaccine and 99 per cent of staff are now vaccinated: “I’m really proud of the team and their determination to keep everyone safe.”
