Where you’ll work

 

In the borough of Hatfield, our residential and nursing home is situated in a community filled with a rich heritage. In the 1930s the De Havilland Aircraft Company opened a factory, where the first every Comet Racer was designed and manufactured. Some of our residents even worked at the Hertfordshire factory, and now the home proudly sits where that very factory once stood. To mark our community’s legacy, we have named our very own pub ‘The Comet’, which is wonderful for reminiscence. Complete with pumps and optics and vintage aviation décor, including traditional pictures of bi-planes and the Comet Racer itself. As you can imagine, The Comet is a popular spot in the care home. It ignites wonderful memories and a passion for the history of Hatfield that we are so proud of. The Comet is also a social hub right in the heart of the home. It’s the perfect place to challenge a loved one or friend to a game of cards or catch up over dominoes.
