Emily Robinson - Head Housekeeper

Emily is huge dog fan and is in fact is also a trained dog behaviourist – think training your dog to do what you actually want it to do. However Emily doesn’t just like dogs but also every other type of creature too. She currently owns one dog called Maisie, one Chinese Hamster called Elby and 15 fish (no names apparently). She also tells me she has plans for another dog and a giant centipede. Yikes! Emily is also a  sport lover being mega fit her current sport of choice being snowboarding and Dance.

Doni Nunes - Housekeeper

When we asked Doni what he did in his spare time we quickly realised we should of asked what he doesn’t do. For starters he loves watching football and is an avid supporter of the the Arsenal football team. But he is also super sporty himself playing badminton, table tennis and is also the right man to have on your bowling team (as we recently discovered on a company night out – he was in my team). He also likes listening to music and plays the guitar and sites his influences as Lincoln Park and Green Day.

Christina Aceto - Housekeeper

Christina loves socializing and dining out (Turkish and Italian food being her particular favourites) but I also understand that she loves to dine in too. Apparently she is a mean cook with her go to dish being Spaghetti Bolognaise. Christina is also a creative elsewhere having an eye for home design and decoration, but it doesn’t stop there. She is also well on her way to completing her first novel with the front cover having already been designed. She also squeezes in time to write poems if she finds a moment when she is not doing all of the above.

Alba Asensi - Housekeeper

Alba is a country loving girl who loves nothing better than a long walk through the countryside with her Husky dog, Usha so long as she says there is a pub at the end of it! She also likes listening to music and  plays the piano and has written well over 50 songs! Alba also likes to read with folklore stories and fairy tales among her favourites and so I had to ask her – if she believed in Fairies? She paused to think for a moment and said ‘yes I think I do. After all where do all those socks go’ You’ve got to admit it she might have a point.

Amy Tenant Painter/Decorator

Amy is an integral part of our team helping to ensure that all our properties look up to our high standards. Occasionally she helps out our housekeeping team and has been dubbed “The Robo Cop of cleaning”. In her spare time Amy loves spending time outdoors and scaling mountains.

Peggy - Office Dog

Peggy is our lovely super friendly office dog. Originally from Romania she was born on the street in a shivering minus 20 degrees. A rescue charity bought her over here to England and now she lives the good life with us. Being a beautiful mongrel we wondered what breeds she was and so we decided to do a DNA test. The results were surprising to say the least. She is 24% Miniature Dachshund and 12% Pekinese – what we want to know is where did those long legs came from!

Charity Work

Thousands of children and adults in Romania have suffered severe physical and emotional damage after years of being shut away in an orphanage or chronic hospital.

Signet Apartments is proud to be associated with Relief Fund for Romania – a charity that achieves truly wonderful things for people in desperate situations.

Every time a guest stays at a Signet Apartment we make a donation. A single stay ensures 17 children can be treated with antibiotics and for every two stays our donation can provide a monthly food pack for two people and numerous other ways that make a real difference to their quality of life.

Currently our focus is on helping provide therapy for over 500 adults with severe disability in long stay hospitals where sometimes there is no heating and no food. We are also helping to provide combined music and arts therapy for over 400 children in institutions repairing the damage of lost early years.

‘We were amazed at the difference your programme made to our deaf/blind children. We had no idea such methods existed – we are so happy for them’

Another great benefit of the Relief Fund for Romania is that they guarantee that 100% of any donation from us goes directly to Romania and nowhere else. They can do this because their administration costs are funded separately (their audited accounts also show very low administration costs).

So thank you for helping us to help them. These small changes can make such a difference.
