The Mayor of Surrey joined residents at Care UK’s Whitebourne care home in Frimley for an end-of-year party and to present care staff with awards for their long service and dedication to the Frimley community.
On Thursday 19th December the Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Beverley Harding, met residents at the home in Burleigh Road. Home manager Ros Stevenson said: “We were delighted when Cllr Harding asked to join us. She visited all the residents and talked to relatives before presenting awards to some of our long-serving staff.”
She presented Rosaline Stevenson, Jackie Thomas, Heidi Stroude and Debbie Batchelor with a certificate for 10-years service along with badges and £100 Debenhams vouchers. Tracy Allfrey and Beata Trawcynska were also presented with five-year service certificates and badges.
“This was the end of a busy month for our residents: they had visited the local pub for a festive lunch, they went to see Peter Pan at the Princes Theatre, Aldershot, and, as many of them love cooking, they have been busy in the kitchen, creating a beautiful cake and tasty cookies, which they shared with our visitors.”
Pupils from the local Lakeside Primary School also visited the home to entertain the residents. Ros said: “The residents love to join in with the singing - and they love to chat with the children.
“Many of our residents have lived in the area all their lives and they like to keep involved with the local community.”
