Skiing in the New Forest!
A BIG THANK YOU to all of our staff who had to cope with extremely challenging conditions on Thursday and Friday with the freezing and blizzard like conditions in the Bournemouth area.
Due to the commitment and resolve of the whole team staff numbers were maintained throughout and at no point was care compromised.
This event can be seen as a benchmark for the caliber of people who work at The Evergreens and their determination not to allow residents to be put at risk. We are very proud of you all and would like to express our sincere gratitude to you. Special acknowledgement should also be made to Anna, newly acting as Deputy Manager and tested to the limit with both medical and staffing issues and also to Rob, chauffeur par excellence who tirelessly ferried staff in and out of work and kept everyone safe in the dangerous conditions.
Hats off to you all and again Many Thanks!
So it may not feel especially like it, but Spring isn’t too far away and to prove it, the bulbs are pushing upwards!
To make the most of it, we have a minibus tour on Thursday, 22nd February to see the snowdrops at The Kingston Lacey Estate. We’ll be taking in the sights and stopping for a panoramic view and some refreshments at Badbury Rings.
