Welcome Ruth & Jake

We are pleased to welcome Ruth & Jake to Valerie Manor. Jake will take on the Hospitality Assistant role on a Sunday morning and Ruth is our new Activities Coordinator and will work alongside Theresa.

Please join us in wishing them well!

As usual we have asked them both to write a little introduction.

Ruth – At present I work in Occupational therapy at Zachery Merton Hospital in Rustington. I love my current job but have been able to continue working there whilst starting my new role as Activity Coordinator once a week on a Tuesday at Valerie Manor. At present I am living with my family (husband, two teenage sons and dog) up on a hill over looking Upper Beeding in a camper van. The views are stunning. This is only for a while whilst we are waiting to move into our new home in Upper Beeding. My other loves are sport and i belong to Steyning Athletics Club where I cycle (on and off road) run and swim (in the pool, lakes and sea) I have enjoyed competing in many races and triathlons. I am thrilled to be joining Valerie Manor and can’t wait to meet everyone.

Jake – Hi, my name is Jake and I am 16 years old and this is my first job. I have just finished school and I have a place at Brighton City College to start a Catering course in September. I have a passion for food and cooking but also enjoy my mountain bike and meeting friends. I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
