Following a competition held by Hartford Care; (our joint venture partners on our latest care home ventures) through The Daily Echo, our care home at Victoria Road, Netley Abbey has been given the name 'Netley Court', in remembrance of the Netley Court School that previously occupied the site. The name was chosen by Stan Rickeard, a local historian and Sheila Perry; who each won a £200 hamper courtesy of Romsey delicatessen Dish. delikitchen.
Stan, 89, said: “I’m really pleased that we have retained its original name. It is rather appropriate. We all try to retain our landmarks so that’s why I have made a point of keeping it." -The Daily Echo
