Presentation of Long Service Certificates

Shirley, Olive and Mary having been presented with Long Service Certificates

In January three Long Service Certificates were presented to three of our members. Mary Lashmar and Betty Ships received theirs having each served Creekside for 40 years, and Shirley Worthington received hers for 10 years service.  As Olive Lailey had been unable to attend the January meeting, she had her certificate presented to her in February.  Olive had served Creekside for 30 years.  Congratulations to them all.

Unfortunately when we took the photo at the February meeting Betty Ships was unable to be there having broken her wrist.  We all wish her a speedy recovery.


Retirement of Sickness Visitor

At the end of 2011 it was with regret to Creekside W.I. that Maureen Turner decided it was time to retire as a sick visitor.  She had carried out the job, together with Margaret Paice, for a great number of years visiting members not only at home, but also in Hospital and in Convalescent Homes. She was always there with a smile and tried to cheer up the members.  She will be greatly missed, and we hope she enjoys her retirement from the job.
