We are lucky to welcome 2 new student nurses, Craig and Ade, to Rural Care this week. They have arrived for a month’s placement in their First Year whilst studying Learning Disability Nursing at Hertfordshire University. We have found in the past that student nurses really value the experience they get here on the farm, especially as it is very different to a hospital or residential setting. We hope Craig and Ade find this too and really enjoy their time here with us.
This week we have been busy as we draw closer to the Christmas period. New gravel has been laid around the paths near Rural Care, helping to keep the area looking neat and tidy, whilst also improving wheelchair accessibility. One of our school groups from Greenside have made the first of many Christmas wreaths, whilst the first Christmas trees have been dug up, potted up and put outside the Farm Store ready to be sold. The trees proved to be very popular last year and we hope to sell many more this year over the festive season.
