This week saw a very special party at The Lodges as we said a sad but cheerful goodbye to June Lyons after nearly 35 years service.
June started her career at The Lodges in 1984 where she was quickly appointed as manager. Over the years June has been a major and important part in the lives of the very many residents who have lived at The Lodges and a friend and great support to many of their relatives.
June has always been held in high regard by residents, staff, relatives, friends, doctors, nurses and other health care professionals. Always a comfort to residents and relatives, she recognised quickly when something was amiss and was there to always put it right.
June’s final day was celebrated with a wonderful party including past residents’ relatives, current and past staff and ex healthcare professionals. Also, in attendance were the staff from Everycare (the sister company’s staff), duty staff and current residents.
The party included a live band and a lovely selection of food with the resident Chef on hand to cook and join in the festivities.
We wish June a long and happy retirement.

Staff made heroic efforts to get to work at both care homes over the last two days. Some walked long distances, others stayed overnight, whilst some were picked up by the care home owner in a 4×4 vehicle.
Everyone pulled together to ensure that our residents were safe, warm, and cared for in the way they would normally expect.
“It’s so encouraging to see people working as a team and putting themselves at risk for the sake of others. It shows that staff really do care and its not just a job” said Mary Cottrell who owns Tydraw and Wentworth Lodges.
“Thanks to all our amazing staff who showed their committment and care for our residents over the last couple of days”.
