College Fields Nursing Home staff rewarded for long service

STAFF at a Barry nursing home have been rewarded for their service.

Eight members of staff at College Fields Nursing Home, in Barry, were recently given long service awards for landmark lengths of service.

Elizabeth Hughes was rewarded for two decades working at the Barry nursing home. She started as a care assistant 20 years ago and, with support, developed her skills and qualified as a nurse, now leading her team.

Barry And District News:

Ms Hughes’ family has history at College Fields – her husband worked here, along with her mother-in-law who worked at the nursing home for 30 years.

Five staff members were rewarded for 15 years of service at the nursing home:

  • Danoiel Ricaforte
  • Fely Hogan
  • Cecille Oliver
  • Pat Scanlan
  • Joan Wakefield

Plus, Jayne Webb and Lynsay Howell were both presented with their awards for working a decade at the Barry nursing home.

Barry And District News:

While presenting staff with awards director, Mike Kemp, said: “I’m proud of you all – the service you provide is invaluable.

“During what has been the most traumatic period in the 32-year history of the home you have all shown commitment and dedication.

“You have coped cheerfully – despite uncomfortable PPE and challenges – making the lives of residents as good as could be even without the normal visiting of family and friends.”


College Fields Nursing Home offers the “real living wage” and has a few vacancies for care staff to join their team.
