and away she goes!

some of the staff and residents came outside to give Hilary a bit of a send off! she had so many cards, flowers and gifts to carry that Karen offered to drive her home.  it has been a very emotional day and we are all so sorry to let her go - please come back and visit Hilary and don't forget you are on tea duty as usual at the Annual Garden Party!!

a fond farewell to Hilary

Hilary our Deputy Manager is enjoying her last day with us today - a presentation from the Chief Executive of Greensleeves, music by Derek on the piano, flowers, gifts, cards, plants....and lots of tearful goodbyes from residents and staff.

Hilary will be sorely missed as she has looked after everyone so well for over 12 years and is much loved by residents, staff, relatives and the various professionals who deal with MEH ...Karen especially will miss her unwavering support but we all hope that Hilary enjoys 'retirement' in her new cottage by the sea, and that she will pay us regular visits.

A picnic in the lounge today ...

The residents were bemused but joined in with good spirits and enjoyed their afternoon!
