The other week we received a visit from the Coventry Social Services Inspection Team. They were with us for over four hours and looked over our records in some detail. The outcome was that they were most complimentary about the way the Almshouses are run and only had one tiny point of criticism. One of the team even asked to be put on the waiting list!

The plans for improving Ford’s Hospital have now gone to the planners for building approval and we hope to invite tenders in the near future so that we can start work once the planners have given their blessing. While the work is being done it may be necessary for the residents to use the guest rooms for a period so regretfully they will not be available for residents’ visitors during that time.



Some people are so fond of ill luck. That they run half way to meet it!

Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.

You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.

Life is short but there is always time for courtesy.
