On 28th June 1918 the Treaty of Versailles was signed.

The Treaty ended the state of War, but it would be six months later until the Armistice was signed on 11th November 1918 and the fighting ended.

Come and share your thoughts and memories with us at St Michael's over afternoon tea as we commemorate this anniversary and other significant events over the last ten decades.

We will remember those who gave so, much so willingly.

Why The Poppy?

Colonel John McCrae lost a friend during the conflict and was inspired by the sight of Poppies growing an a scarred battlefield, he went on to write the famous poem 'In Flanders Field'.

After World War 1 the Poppy was adopted as a sign of remembrance...….wear a Poppy with pride this Armistice Day.

“Mum has been there two years after stroke in 2012. My mother was really active before her stroke. I never wanted to put my mum in a nursing home, but being disabled myself doing all we could as a family at home. First few years caring for her at home we had no option in the end and put her in a nursing home. She needed 24 hr care. Has taken a few changes to find the right one, but we have finally found it. Carers are really good with her and concerns you may have. The manager is really helpful. There are always problems when relatives adapt to living in a nursing home big change for them. Staff and management have done best to make mum feel at home. Problems fixed no problem, they are used to caring for the elderly they now, want works best for the peace of mind of our loved ones, advise, help make decisions. Makes loved one's worries go away.

“My mother had a short stay at St Michael's but she was looked after and cared for excellently. Mum was very poorly but nothing was too much trouble for the staff at St Michael's. It was a very caring home and kept spotlessly clean. There was plenty going on and the social team didn't leave those out who were unable to leave their rooms even if they went in and had a chat or read a book with them. Receptionist very kind and helpful.”
