AM praises staff recognised at Wales Care Awards

South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies has praised several staff from a Barry Care Home recognised at the Wales Care Awards 2018. 

 

The awards were held at Cardiff City Hall on Friday 19th October – and three members of staff from College Fields Nursing Home picked up gongs.

 

Nursing Assistant Sian Kedward was awarded the Dignity in Care Gold Award – as well as a bronze award in the Commitment to Training & Workforce Development category.

 

Sian has worked at College Fields for nearly 20 years – and regularly goes above and beyond the call of duty – including shaving her head to raise money for a hydrobath.

 

Meanwhile – Deputy Manager Emma Watkins was a bronze winner in the Independent Sector Nurse of the Year category – and gardener Nikolas Williams picked up a silver prize in the Commitment to Quality in Housekeeping and Hospitality Award.

 

College Fields has been run by Mike Kemp since it opened in 1999 – and Mr Davies said the whole team should be especially proud.

 

Mr Davies said, “I recently visited College Fields and the attentiveness and dedication of the staff was there for all to see.

 

“It is therefore right to see them recognised at the Wales Care Awards 2018 – and I’d like to send my warmest congratulations to Sian, Emma and Nikolas.

 

“Their awards are all fully deserved – and I know they will continue to go above and beyond the call of duty in their roles.”
