Each month, we’ll be adding a new team member to the page so you can get to know the staff here at St. George’s Nursing Home…
Peter has worked in catering since the age of 14. He trained at Weston College then worked locally until he joined the Army, aged 21, where he spent 22 years as a Chef and as a Chef Instructor. After leaving the Army in 2002, he took a position which put him in charge of Catering Management and Technical Catering at Aldershot Army School of Catering.
He later spent some time working with Yum brands and Unilever as an Operations Manager, and most recently with BUPA as a Catering Manager, before joining our team as Head Chef.
Peter likes overseas travel, and he’s been applying his passion with his new role, creating global theme days and meals for our residents. He enjoys good food and wine and time with his wife, Lyn (and they’ll be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this year), and their two sons.

Hi, I am Sue and I visit the residents here at St George’s Nursing Home on a regular basis to cut and style their hair. It is lovely to bring some joy and pampering into the lives of the elderly, and I thoroughly enjoy visiting. I have over 40 year’s experience as a hairdresser and have been visiting this care home since it opened. I find it fulfilling and rewarding to be part of the residents lives.
Fun Fact: I am a dog lover and I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren on the beach.
