Pampering at Cole Court


A day of pampering, preening and pure indulgence was held at Cole Court readying the residents for a string of Christmas parties!


Students studying Beauty Therapy at the College Ystrad Mynach visited Cole Court to carry out a day of nail treatments, facials and massage for the residents.  Cole Court in Mornington Meadows Caerphilly is a United Welsh Living+ scheme for the over 55’s.

The pamper day took place following a session at Living+ scheme Kenneth Treasure Court in St Mellons with Cardiff and Vale College (formerly Coleg Glan Hafren) – and  due to its success it won’t be the last!


Taking place the week before their Christmas parties the chance to be pampered came just in time!  Esther Barlow has been living at Cole Court for three years; her grand daughter is a beautician in Barcelona so she jumped at the chance to have her nails done at home.  “It was a wonderful pampering day; it does us all the world of good, and gets us all together.”


Community Investment team supporting job seekers

Supporting tenants into employment

The Community Investment team at United Welsh has recently helped two more tenants secure employment.

Mike is from Llanbradach. He has been working with Clare Watkins as part of the Gateway project and Clare helped him to prepare for his interview with Jehu. Mike is doing really well and is enjoying being back in work.

Martell lives in Cardiff. We were thrilled to be able to support him when he applied for a trainee electrician role. Martell was successful at interview and is now working for a company in Cardiff which specialises in fitting PV systems and insulation products.
