Blog Hello my name is Christabel,


I’ve lived at The Close for 5 months now and came here for respite but felt at home here so decided to make my stay a permanent one, I’ve met so many nice people here. I’ve had many years having long walks with my dogs and enjoyed riding my horses through the years. I lost my husband 2 & half years ago which left me with a big gap in life, My dog saved me, giving me such love and company but also saved my life when I had a accident in my home my dog barked and barked until help arrived from neighbours. My husband Geoff was amazing man, he was always frightened of my horses so didn’t come out when I rode them as my animals always came first. Enjoy my lunch in the bistro and enjoy helping people very much. I join in activities, trips and in the home which I enjoy very much. I like to visit the library and put my head into a good animal story. Thank you for reading my blog Christabel
