Surehaven Pembroke Dock welcomes a Member of the Senedd for an employee celebration.

Samiel Kurtz visited Pembroke Dock care home on 21st April to thank staff for their hard work and commitment throughout the pandemic.

The celebrations included marking four long-service achievements with two of these staff in attendance - Rich Butler, a senior cook, has worked at the service since it opened in 2008 and Lin Davies-Thomas, a support worker, who has worked at the home for 14 years.

The pair were presented with prosecco and flowers as well as certificates as a thank you for their continued support.

Service Manager of the Shaw healthcare-operated home, Sarah Lees, said: “With the sense of family that is fostered within Surehaven I could not be prouder of the team here. Throughout the challenging times everyone stepped up and went above and beyond to support all our residents, each other and the resident’s families”.

“I am delighted that all staff were being recognised for all they do and that we were able to host this celebration in the home.”

Chief executive of Shaw, Russell Brown, and chief operating officer, Mike Smith, also attended the event and thanked staff personally.

Surehaven Pembroke Dock provides nurse led care for people living with a dementia, mental health issues or learning disabilities for up to 24 service users.
