CARER Pam Meekings got a send off to remember when she left Hazell Court residential home in Sudbury after working there for 26 years.
Staff and residents of the Acton Lane home organised a surprise party for Pam to say goodbye, and presented her with gift vouchers, flowers and a retirement cake.
Pam, 67, of Woodhall Road, Sudbury, also received a gold watch from Partnership in Care, which owns the residential home.
Manager Joan Shaw said: “Pam will be missed by staff and residents, as she has always been such a hard working, dedicated, committed and caring member of the care team.”
Also present at the surprise party were Pam’s family, friends and past colleagues, as well as residents and staff.
