Jemma, Operations Manager for over 19 years at Westall House said,
"Westall House is a fantastic place, one of the things that we love is the links that we have with the local community. We do a lot with them, from our 'Friends of Westall House' who would provide transport and come a long to events in the home, to our links with the local village primary school, pre-school and Brownies.
We take the residents to the Village Church services, to watch the annual production at the local school. The pre-school children come to Westall House every year to meet Santa and have their summer sports day here."
During the pandemic we have been touched by the words, letters and gifts of support we have received from the community, they have really kept us going.
