General Manager (Plaxton Court)

I oversee the running of Plaxton Court. This includes the Fitness Suite, catering, gardens and grounds maintenance, housing, and use of the communal facilities. Also commercial activities - the coffee shop, gym, shop, hair salon and room hire. I am also responsible for the delivery of care on site. My phone number is 01723 340290.

Resident or prospective residents can ask me about any aspect of housing and support in the Scarborough area. If I don’t know the answers I can signpost to other agencies.

I head up a team that can help in terms of repairs, finance, catering, care and support, and healthy living.

Every day is different. When I get up in the morning, I have no idea what is going to happen that day. Working in the care sector can be very unpredictable.

I enjoy the relationships that I have developed with residents, their families and external users.

I am very proud of the community that has developed at Plaxton Court. I enjoy seeing how people's lives have improved with a little extra care.

My background is in welfare benefits and housing. I worked for Bradford and Scarborough Councils before becoming the Neighbourhood Services Officer for Scarborough. I have worked at Plaxton Court for nearly ten years. I've watched it grow from a building site to a thriving community. I've learned a lot along the way.
