2016 has been a very difficult year for The Old Vicarage as we lost our founder and driving force, but more importantly our Mum, Annie Sinnott in April and then our beloved father Ian died in November leaving a great hole not just in our lives but in those of the residents and staff at The Old Vicarage, the villagers of Leigh, and the many close friends that they had all over the world.
We were so pleased that both Mum and Dad lived to see all their hard work in developing the home and the staff being rewarded with an Outstanding rating by the Care Quality Commission, one of only 1% of all homes in England. We are also very fortunate that their legacy of developing the staff team has made sure we have an excellent senior management team to maintain and grow the work we do here.
We still intend for the home to be a focal point of village activity and will be holding our popular events such as the dog shoew, wine tastings and BBQs among others.
Finally we need to thank all those who have provided us with love, support and advice during this year.
A Happy New Year
Josie Aggett and Carey Faulkner
