During these times of uncertainty, our priority has been, and will continue to be, to ensure the safety and physical and mental wellbeing of all our residents and staff. Throughout lockdown we have offered financial, practical and emotional support to help make life a little easier. Toilet paper, cleaning products, sanitiser and laundrette facilities were supplied free of charge, financial support made available to those in need and virtual drop in sessions set up to offer advice, a friendly face and answer any questions.
Social channels have been buzzing with suggestions for how to stay mentally and physically well. From Joe Wicks PE lessons and virtual quizzes to Sourdough baking masterclasses and language lessons, we’ve been spoilt for choice. And with time on our hands we’ve been staying connected and lapping it all up.
Each week we have scoured the internet to signpost residents to a variety of online content designed to inform, entertain or just lift spirits during Lockdown.

Ever live streamed the Northern Lights straight from Canada from your bed? We haven’t either but we haven’t given up. By the way, the best time to see them is said to be between 3am and 10am GMT.
Cats On Camera
And last but by no means least, there was this because who could resist a smile.
