Local MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown visited Edwardstow Court and enjoyed chatting with our residents
Edwardstow received a visit last week from Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown the Conservative Member of Parliament for The Cotswolds. Sir Geoffrey had a tour of the care home but also had the opportunity to speak with many of our residents. Many of our residents have met Sir Geoffrey in the community before they moved into a care home.
Sir Geoffrey was impressed with the modern surroundings and the facilities available. Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown said, “Having spoken to residents, and hearing their excellent reviews, as well as seeing the vast range of activities on offer, I am very impressed by Edwardstow Court Care Centre.”
Edwardstow Court’s deputy manager Sian Howse showed Sir Geoffrey around and introduced him to Gemma our Activities Co-ordinator, Gemma was painting rocks with our residents which are then hid around the local community for people to find and then re-hide. We gave Sir Geoffrey a rock to take away and hide, we look forward to this popping up somewhere soon.
It was great for our local MP to visit and to see the facilities available at one of the newest care homes in his constituency. Sian Howse said “We were delighted that Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP was able to visit Edwardstow Court and thankful to him for taking the time. Our residents and staff greatly enjoyed his visit. Interaction with the local community is very important to the home and to the Trust and we look forward to continuing this mutually supportive association.”
