Pop Up Shop St Barnabas

Last week on November 26th we were delighted to invite St Barnabas ‘pop up shop’ Charity Shop to Valerie Manor.

Marianne  (the shop manager from Steyning) and her colleague Lynne brought a lovely selection of Christmas goodies with them.

The majority of the residents visited the shop throughout the morning and stocked up on Christmas cards and wrapping paper for the upcoming festive period!

It was lovely to see some relatives also take advantage of the shop’s goodies too whilst eating some of our home made cookies and cakes. (thank you Alison!)

We look forward to welcoming the ladies back at Easter time with some new stock for the ever changing seasons!

Wreath Making……….

We always know its that time of year when Catherine sets to work and organises a lovely activity for our residents to make wreaths ready for our decoration day for Christmas on the Sunday. Such an lovely activity and such amazing wreaths……thank you to Catherine and the residents for our displays again for this year……….we look forward to decorating with everyone this Sunday!

Staff Meeting……



I was delighted once again to have a very lovely, well attended staff meeting. I am just so proud of all the staff here at Valerie Manor and cant thank them enough for all their hard work and dedication. Thank you also to Preeda and Steve for the most delicious variety of food for the evening.
