North Kensington pupils enjoy a magical day at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort

Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School, Notting Hill is the local primary school to the Grenfell Tower Block in North Kensington and having endured a traumatic few weeks following the disaster, we wanted to create a joyful experience by providing the pupils a day out to remember at local theme park; the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, home of our latest landmark build; The Castle Hotel.

All 261 Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School pupils, along with their teachers and parents, attended the trip yesterday where they had full access to the park, lunch and a special visit from the LEGOLAND® friends characters.

The trip, facilitated by Merlin’s Magic Wand – Merlin’s worldwide children’s charity, in partnership with McGoff Construction and The Miles Partnership, was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all of the pupils (and their teachers/parents alike!)

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all involved in this special day.

BBC Nottingham feature The Grand

BBC Nottingham have recently featured the re-enablement unit at The Grand.

The re-enablement unit at The Grand Care Centre is commissioned by Nottingham NHS Trust. It is run with colleagues from the Trust and Age UK. The service is provided for individuals who have experienced numerous falls in their own homes requiring multiple hospital admissions. These individuals are admitted to the re-enablement unit from the hospital before they are discharged home. The task of the staff on the unit is to identify and address the underlying issues which cause these individuals to fall when in their own homes. The staff employed by the home work with a wide range of health and social care professionals to provide re-enablement to this group of individuals.

The average length of stay of individuals in the re-enablement unit is currently running at 14 days which is excellent. In addition, more than three quarters of individuals were still in their own homes three months after they were discharged from the home, and had not experienced any hospital admissions during this period. This service is delivered by the private, public and voluntary sector and is an excellent example of partnership working for the benefit of the local population; as well as reducing the pressure on primary care services.
