It’s been another challenging week of updated and changing advice; the upshot of which is that we are clearly in this period of lock-down for the long term, I would suggest for three or four more months at a minimum.

Everyone, Staff and Residents, are still symptom free and we continue to turn away everyone except vital healthcare professionals (who we are also keeping to a minimum).

I understand we have been having some problems configuring Skype, but I will be going in to St Omer on Tuesday to undertake some important infrastructural changes and will attempt to sort this out while I am there.

If you would like Skype contact with your Relative or Friend please email Rachel at with your Skype address and preferred contact time between 10:00 and 12:00 in the morning and 14:00 and 16:00 in the afternoon and we will sort this out as soon as possible.

I hope you all remain well, and if anyone is experiencing any difficulties that you feel we could help with please do not hesitate to contact us.
