Two long-serving members of staff at a residential and home care service in Pocklington have been congratulated on reaching a quarter of a century of service with the business.

Ann Simpson, a supported living manager, and Gillian Lilley, a registered residential manager, have worked for Sherbutt Residential and Home Care Services, a private family run business, for 25 years.

Sherbutt Residential Services Ltd supports 19 clients with varying degrees of learning disabilities, while Sherbutt Home Care Services Ltd provides care and support to people in their own homes.

Meanwhile, Ann and Gillian and the rest of the staff at the business have another reason to celebrate after an annual inspection completed by the Care Quality Commission found they are complaint with all standards.

Sherbutt Residential Services Ltd have also had their annual environmental inspection, which received the highest hygiene rating of five.

Shelley English, Business Manager, said: “The management would like to give a special thanks to Ann Simpson and Gillian Lilley for their dedication and commitment over the last 25 years, both have been an asset to the company and ensure our standards are maintained at all times.

“A big thank you to all employees for their continued hard work and dedication in caring for people in Pocklington and the surrounding villages.”
