Victoria Edwards

Senior General Manager

Hi, my name is Victoria and I am the Senior General Manager here at Stamford Bridge. Welcome to our website!

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Stamford Bridge has to offer. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.

I have worked for Barchester since 2007, when I initially joined the company as one of four Regional Hospitality Managers. After an in-depth training programme, I then transferred to one of our sister homes, Rivermead, as General Manager in November 2011, and moved to Stamford Bridge in June 2018. I am responsible for the overall running of this home, ensuring that those who live here are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Dawn Scholefield

Kitchen Team

I began my working career at 15 years old as a weekend Kitchen Assistant in a 30 bed nursing home and began my training at Scarborough Technical College on a day release scheme where I gained my chef and pastry qualifications. At the age of 18 I was offered the position of Head Chef relocating five years later to a 60 bed purpose-built nursing home where I remained the Head Chef and organised the new kitchen to suit. In 2005 I joined the team at Stamford Bridge Beaumont, a much larger home where I was employed as 3rd Chef. In 2008 I was offered the position of Head Chef and I now manage a happy and hardworking team, providing high standards of cuisine to our residents.

One of the highlights of my career has been winning the Barchester Chef of the Year Competition as well as the Food Hygiene Award - they had never been won by the same person before me! I live on a small farm and in my spare time love being with my dog and helping out at lambing time.
