‘Say Hello… Wave Goodbye’

Today we said goodbye to our wonderful cook Linda as she begins her retirement.
Linda has been looking after us all for 7 years and will be very much missed.
Happy retirement Linda.

We also welcomed Mike to Douglas Drive. Mike is a chef and will be taking over the oven gloves from Linda. We very much look forward to working with you and wish you all the best in your new post.
