The lead catering manager for Shropshire’s biggest not-for-profit care home provider is celebrating 20 years’ service with the company.

Natasha Williams celebrates 20 years’ service with Coverage Care Services

Natasha Williams, 44, joined Coverage Care Services in 2002 as catering manager at Fairholme in Oswestry, a role she had for 15 years before becoming lead catering manager for the whole Coverage Care group.

She said: “I go around all the 12 homes carrying out the kitchen audits, supporting catering staff and home managers, carrying out inductions for new catering staff and helping out covering a home in the absence of the catering manager when short staffed due to holidays or sickness.

“I travel all around Shropshire, and as I move around all the homes I enjoy facing a new and exciting challenge every day.

“I have also met a lot of new people, many of whom have become really good friends.”

Coverage Care chief executive Debbie Price said: “The dedication and loyalty of our staff is one of Coverage Care’s biggest strengths, and I would like to say thank you to Natasha for her 20 years of excellent work.

“Our catering teams are a vital element of the brilliant care provided in our homes, and Natasha is a key reason why those teams work so well.”

Before joining Coverage Care, Natasha was a head cook at a care home in Gobowen, and had been lead cook for a company in Wrexham before moving to Oswestry in 2000.
