About us

We have a truly dedicated team at The Lodge, striving to make every visitor feel relaxed and ‘at home’ as much as possible. Although we encourage group work (activities, art & crafts etc), it is not a requirement to join in. Some people will like to spend time on their own with a book or newspaper. We’re here to offer friendly support wherever it’s needed.


The team

Hi, my name is June and I am the owner and manager of The Lodge. I qualified in 1981 as a general nurse working closely with people with spinal injuries. I have over 30 years experience working with the elderly in a care home setting and more recently, adults with learning disabilities. I obtained the Reg. Manager Award L4 in Health and Social Care in 2007 and I have completed all mandatory training requirements.

This is a new venture for me and I am keen to use my talents and experience to provide a friendly and fun environment for people who are looking to get out and meet others with the support of our friendly staff.
Hi, my name is Michael and I began my career in the Jewellery making business but most recently I have been involved with the construction and development of care homes. It was during the building of one of these developments that I met June. We both have a shared interest in working with older people and believe we can make a difference to their day to day lives, by helping them to achieve their goals and make new friends along the way. I love cooking and hope that you will enjoy the dishes I will cook for you.

Please call June on: 02392 694661 to find out more or to arrange a visit.
