Mr Gray, accompanied by his wife and office manager Pippa, toured the home and talked with residents and staff.  

General Manager Ramona Gherendi said: “It was lovely to have James Gray visit White Lodge. The residents were delighted that he was able to visit, several had met him in the past as so many are from the local area.  

"It was also nice to have the opportunity to show all that the home has to offer the residents.  We also spoke about the commitment of the staff team and how fortunate we are to have long serving nurses.” 

One resident, Therese, spoke to James Gray about the strong military connections in the area.

She said: “I was a nurse in the RAF and Wiltshire has had so many people from all the services based here over the years.  The county is very proud of these connections.”

White Lodge Care Home is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which provides nursing, residential and respite care.
