Maple Tree Court care home residents paid special visit

20 March 2019

Port Vale players and staff visited Maple Tree Court care home in Kidsgrove this afternoon to visit some of the residents staying there as well as staff members.

Port Vale legend and Football Advisor for the club, John Rudge, visited early this morning whilst Leon Legge, Tom Conlon and Nathan Smith paid a visit later on in the afternoon to spend some time with the residents, many of whom are Vale fans.

There were a lot of smiles around the place as the Vale players stopped to speak and have photos with some of the residents. The care home provides residential and dementia care for up to 64 older people.

The players and Rudgie were left amused by the stories some of the residents talked about, whilst Nathan Smith got more than what he bargined for and was invited back for a dance the next time he visited!

The players also paid a special visit to Audrey Sherwin, an avid Vale fan just like her son and Port Vale Club Historian, Phil Sherwin.

The visit was organised by Home Manager Claire Wright and Shellie Leese and they were both very grateful for the visit.

"We would like to thank Port Vale and the players for taking time to visit us. We have a number of Vale fans here at the home and they've all been looking forward to meeting the lads"
