Table Top Sale

The table top sale was yet again a great success and we raised just over 100 for the ammenity fund.
Many thanks to Lisa and Simon for all their help in promoting this event.

The ballot sheets have now been counted and the policy for this scheme will remain. No pets.
This policy will be reveiwed in two years.

A trip will take place on Wednesday 9th september to Beckindales at Hawes.
The bus will depart at 1.30pm and we will have tea and cake at approximately 2.15pm.
Please submit your names if interested on the notice board.

Progressive Privacy Door

Unfortunately this is still ongoing and I have no further updates from responsive repairs.


All the legalities have now been sorted out.
We are now waiting for NYCC to commence the fitting out of the buggy park.

Domestic Staff

As you know we have recruited 2 new domestics - Hilary Ayling and Maureen Pollard.
We are awaiting for CRB clearance and up until then they are not allowed to do any flat cleaning unaccompanied, therefore, I am aware that many of you are without a cleaning service at the moment. Sincere apologies regarding this inconvenience, but it is for your benefit that everyone who works within Sycamore needs Criminal Records Clearance and our hands are tied until this all comes through.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter, however, as you will have seen, the communal areas are spick and span as the girls are catching up with those area.

There will also be other disruptions to this cleaning service due to staff annual leave.

Joyce will be away w/c 24th August for 1 week.
The following week Hilary will be away for one week.
Hopefully by September we should be all back to normal.
If in the meantime any of you are really struggling with anything at all,
please do let me know and we will do our utmost to help.

I will be taking 1 week off w/c 31st August
