Veteran Housekeeper Retires After More Than A Quarter Of A Century

A long-standing member of staff at Laureate Court care home, Rotherham, has retired after 26 years of service.

Deputy Housekeeper Lynne Wickson started at the home in March 1994 as a domestic and then progressed onto becoming a kitchen assistant. Lynne then went on to work in care and gained her NVQ Level 2. She then moved back to work within the domestic team where she stayed for the rest of her time at Laureate Court.

In her retirement, Lynne is planning to relax and travel to her favourite place in England, Devon, when she is able to.

Lynne said: “I have loved every minute working at Laureate Court; I have seen a lot of changes, but these were all for the better.

“I have met some lovely staff and residents at Laureate Court, I am going to miss working here.”

Jill Kilgallen, home manager at Laureate Court, said: “Lynne has been an integral part of our team here at Laureate Court for many years and we are all sad to see her go.

“We would all like to wish her the very best for the future, and you’re welcome to visit for a cuppa whenever you like, after lockdown of course!”
