The certificates and gifts were presented to the four by the deputy and home manager, Lorraine Beirne and Ruth Hazeldine.

Nina works as an activity coordinator whilst Maureen is a kitchen assistant, Theresa is a care assistant and Paul works in maintenance

The home provides residential and nursing care for 36 residents.

Speaking after the presentation Nina said: “It certainly does not feel like I have been here that long.

“It feels great to have worked here for 20 years, it was a nice surprise from the home to give us the certificates and gifts.

“When I started here 20 years ago, I didn't think I would still be here for all these years, but I can honestly say I have enjoyed every bit of it.

“The residents and fellow staff members make the home what it is and I couldn't be happier.”

Paul added: “ I really enjoy working at MHA Briar Hill House and really appreciate the gifts, it was a nice surprise.

“I want to thank both Lorraine and Ruth for the surprise  and look forward to the next five years.”
