Featherton House care home in Deddington was filled with cards, balloons and banners as staff and residents said a fond farewell to two loyal staff members after more than 25 years of service.
Sue King, housekeeper at Featherton House, retired after a commendable sixteen years at the home. While Jennifer Ward, activities coordinator, also hung up her uniform after nine years of entertaining residents.
Although residents are sad to see the two long-serving staff members leave, they made sure that they both had a day to remember. On their final days at work residents and the rest of the Featherton House team handed out cards and gifts to wish them well in their retirements.
Both Sue and Jennifer are shining examples of the passion and commitment shown at Featherton House and have dedicated themselves to the home. They have both given considerable years of service and have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Always providing happiness to those who live at the home.
In a slightly scaled-down presentation ceremony, Agi Rygala, interim home manager, presented both ladies with an official certificate of retirement to mark their distinguished careers.
On behalf of everyone at Wren Retirement Living, we would like to wish Sue and Jennifer long and happy retirements. We wish them both the very best for the future. They have been an integral part of our team at Featherton House over the last decade and we would like to thank them both for all their hard work and effort.
Sue and Jennifer will always be welcome back at Featherton House for a catch-up or a cup of tea and a slice of our famous homemade cake when normal visiting arrangements resume.
