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.

“The support and care that my mother has been provided over a 5 month period has been amazing. The friendship of the staff provided was second to none as was their patience with my calls checking up on Mum. The consideration given to medical and palliative support was always well informed. I never had any doubts that Mum was being looked after professionally in a well-provided environment.

I have marked the section 'Management' as 'Good' - the ward supervision, alerts of health deterioration, and administration of care, food, drink, cleaning and activities was excellent, but in my 5 months association with St Michaels, I had no contact to assess the home's 'Management', perhaps because the NHS was the funding provider. So neither can I rate 'Value for Money'.

I would want to thank many by name but this site asks me not to do so. The personal service Mum and my family received made the end of her life calm, enjoyable, pain-free, and dignified in every way that was possible.”

“I would like to comment on this wonderful home on behalf of my family.
My dear brother was admitted to the home in May suffering with terminal cancer. Obviously a very sad, difficult time for everyone but from the day he arrived he settled in and relaxed. He was treated with kindness and understanding and all the staff, nursing and care assistants were wonderful.
My brother had severe learning disabilities and so wasn't able to communicate fully with the staff but they went out of their way to get to know him and to understand his needs. They respected his dignity and privacy at all times and made sure he was comfortable and cared for.
As the family, we were always made so very welcome, anytime day or night.
The home itself is a beautiful building which has been well looked after and is clean and welcoming. The rooms are lovely, with character and very good facilities.
The gardens are beautiful.
Thank you to everyone who helped and cared for my dear brother so well.”

“Lovely nursing home, all staff very sweet and caring. The nurses were very attentive and on the ball. Entertainment staff very jolly and always trying to find new things to keep the residents amused.
My mother was admitted from hospital on 'end of life care'. When we viewed the home my family and I found it very calm and quiet and we felt it was a lovely environment to be nursed.”
