Since Vanguard Medical Cleaning began working with Severn Hospice earlier in the year the focus on improving standards and compliance has been relentless. All this hard work has been recognised by Becky Richardson, Director of care at Severn Hospice who presented all the Vanguard Housekeepers with an “Afternoon tea in a box” in appreciation of their efforts.

Becky commented,  “we wanted to say a special thank you to Vanguard who have taken the standards of cleanliness at the hospice to a different level and are constantly working to keep our buildings clean, hygienic and safe clinical spaces. This is an extra award to show our collective appreciation for all they do”.

Vanguard Medical Cleaning are delighted to support Nightingale House Build a Balloon campaign to celebrate 25 years of hospice care. They have been thanked for their support in getting the scheme off the ground.

Nine companies have supported the campaign and work building the balloon is now underway.

Its first flight will take place later this year with a special unveiling later this summer for the corporate sponsors and supporters who sponsored their own balloon panel.

It is also hoped it will take part in the Oswestry Balloon Carnival.

The nine companies are Read Construction, TACP Architects, Ifor Williams Trailers, DTM Legal, Riello UPS, Vanguard Medical Cleaning, Glyn Wylfa, Scottish Power and P And A Group.

The location for the unveiling is yet to be announced, but weather dependant, it is also hoped the balloon will take flight at this year’s Oswestry balloon carnival. The hospice supports patients and their families from the Oswestry area.

Hospice fundraiser, Sarah Povey commented: “We are so incredibly grateful for the support Vanguard Medical Cleaning have given us. It just simply would not have been possible to get off the ground without their funding.

Our Nightingale House balloon is being created to celebrate our 25th anniversary of providing care but it also symbolises so much more... it is a message of hope, appreciation and how we have all come together as a community to create something so special. I cannot wait for our supporters to see this magnificent balloon take to the skies.”

Nightingale House offers a wide range of facilities to people and their families living with life-limiting illness. Patients come from Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire and outlying areas.

It is with enormous pleasure that I can introduce Vanguard’s first ever edition of a regular newsletter. I’m so sorry it’s taken so long - 16 years to be precise. That’s right - on 1st April 2002 Vanguard was born.

I wouldn’t dream of boring you all with the details of the last 16 years but what I can say is that one theme has run consistently throughout the years. We have always looked to recruit friendly, caring, helpful people. It is with great pride that when I meet people today, many of whom have worked for us for many years, that I still see those characteristics shining through.

By the time you read this summer will nearly be over – I hope you’ve all enjoyed the amazing weather. It’s been pretty hectic here since we sent out the last newsletter. Not only have we started working for 9 new customers but we have also moved lock stock and barrel from our old home of nearly 10 years to our new of offices in St Martins near Oswestry.

We are only about 5 minutes from our old address but out in the sticks a bit which is great - apart from more wasps and flies coming in and the odd tractor spreading manure! Our resident all round builder and super skilled tradesman, Peter, has worked wonders from roofing, joinery, plastering and even kitchen fitting. Please do come and see us if your passing. We’d love to make you a cappuccino and show you round. Our new address is on the back of this newsletter should you need it.
