A number of staff at Doulton Court Care Home in Sutton on Sea were recognised last week after they received a variety of long service awards.

The workers were joined by family and friends to celebrate their achievements.

Gifts were presented for services of 10, 15 and 20 years by home manager Joyce Turner, Four Seasons Health Care regional manager Jo Hadfield and HR manager Carl Tate.

The staff that were celebrated included Jonard Anas, Julie Carver, Nichola Needham, Sue Hopkins, Michelle Jackson, Jane Mitchell, David Garside, Vanessa Hall, Annette Henchcliffe, Judy Hobson and Jeanette Noveno, who are pictured together with the Four Seasons managers.

Lynda Earley also received a 10-year recognition, but was not able to be present at the awards.

Home manager Joyce Turner said: “As the manager, I am really proud to have presented the awards to celebrate the commitment and loyalty of so many of the staff here.

“The great strength of Doulton Court has always been its stable and committed staff team. They are really like a family who always pull together to support each other in difficult times both as a team and as individuals.

“I can’t thank them enough for their support for the home, the residents and to me since I moved here just over three years-ago.

“It was a joyous occasion to be part of.”
