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