As many know St George is the patron Saint of England, his feast day being April 23rd.

He is believed to have a courageous Roman soldier who was prepared to die rather than deny his Christian faith and in doing so became a Martyr. St George now stands for Courage and faith is an example to others to stand by their convictions and the triumph of good over evil.

We are therefore going to celebrate in his honour and to try and understand why we are proud to be English, we will do this through re-visiting our culture, our history & our art.

Come along and join us for a fun afternoon with delicious food and refreshments, and the live music will be performed by Darren. Everyone is welcome.

“St Michael's is a beautifully situated care home in a tranquil setting. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful.
The care my mother received in the last months of her life was kind, caring and professional. It is a difficult job and the staff here do it wonderfully well.
We were indeed lucky, as a family, to have my mother so well cared for and we can't thank the staff enough for giving us peace of mind.”

“During the two years I have been visiting I have found most of the staff including the nurses to be friendly and helpful. I have noticed on numerous occasions how short staffed the home can be. In spite of that, the staff tend to work it out amongst themselves. There is rarely tension between them. Everybody is well cared for and treated with immense dignity. Only on very few occasions have I heard the staff short tempered. I find that very impressive. Cleanliness is good. The rooms are shabby, the carpets equally so. The bedding is dreadful, old, discoloured, mismatched and ill-fitting. The food is exceptionally good. It is always served hot and well presented. Compliments to the chef. My friend's clothes are always clean but she sometimes smells of urine. Short staffed, I would blame for that. I must add that the positive comments far outweigh the negative ones. I am very happy with the love and care my friend receives. It pleases me that she is very fond of the staff.”

“Dad was very well looked after by all the staff and they were friendly to all dad's visitors. I was impressed by the cleanliness and decor of the home and that there were many attractive and smaller rooms where residents could take visitors. The Garden Room was lovely and dad was able to sit in the garden when the weather permitted. His own room was pleasant too. I thought it was a lovely place for dad to have respite care and he was happy being there. I don't know about the food, dad said he didn't eat much and it was bland.”
