You may be aware that we are very lucky to have Michele & Nick Stubbs provide our mandatory training here at the Home.

Nick visited recently for the first of this years Fire Training sessions which as always was informative but also enjoyable. Nick understands the ‘uniqueness’ of the 17th Century Grade II listed part of the home and has been heavily involved in reviewing our Fire plan on a regular basis.

Whilst the subject of Fire prevention is a very serious matter Nick  engages everyone to ensure ALL staff are clear on their responsibilities in the event of an emergency situation arising at Valerie Manor.

The session also included practical training on how to evacuate a resident who is ‘bed bound’. A volunteer was ‘sought’ with yours truly given the honor.

Thank you to Nick and Michele for their continued support and training sessions throughout the year.
