Update and news 7th May 2021
Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to this week’s newsletter. We hope you find this useful in terms of giving you an update on what is happening at Culliford and what we’ve been up to, including any updates regarding COVID.
Throughout the pandemic we have continually reviewed our visiting policy in line with latest government guidance. We understand how important continuing to visit your relatives is to you and that is why we want to keep you up to date with our plans as much as we can.
We are pleased to inform you that we can now extend our indoor visits from 30mins to one hour from next Monday 10th May.

We are looking further at the guidance and will provide more details in next week’s newsletter. At all times, we continue to take direction from our local Public Health regarding the ‘R’ rate and monitor this ourselves very carefully. We will also consistently be reviewing our visiting guidance, and this may change instantly, as, and when required.
Please do email Marnie Moors our Deputy Manager if you have any questions or concerns around visiting.
