Monica Earl, night carer, and Adam Wright, head chef, were recognised for dedicating 27 years each to the home, while a further six members of the team thanked for dedicating more than five years each.

Each staff member was presented with a framed certificate and pin badge, which was presented by the home’s manager, Hanro Steytler.

Following our morning meeting I was delighted to present the eight members of staff with long service badges. We are a proud and happy team at Oaklands and this shows in the longevity of service we have here.”
