Six members of staff from Queen Alexandra Cottage Homes were congratulated for their long service.

The staff, all from the car wing of the homes in Seaside, were presented with long service awards at the annual general meeting.

The recipients were carer Jackie Messenger, who has given 20 years service, RN Neville Walley, who has clocked up 15 years, chef Barry Robinson, another 15 years, and carer Maureen Morris, also 15 years.

Two of the homes’ domestic help ladies Pam Langley and Maureen Pomfrey both celebrated ten years of service.
