Long service awards for Fenland staff
Four Cambridgeshire County Council employees from the Fenland area have been rewarded for completing more than 25 years’ service with the authority.
They were among 15 employees to receive long service awards, having clocked up an impressive 368 years’ service between them.
The awards were presented by the council’s vice-chairman Sebastian Kindersley at a special ceremony at Shire Hall recently.
Cllr Kindersley said: “Everyone receiving awards did so because of the outstanding contribution they have made to Cambridgeshire County Council and the many services it provides.
“I am delighted their loyal service and dedication has been recognised and I am very pleased to be a part of that. Congratulations to them all.”
The four members of staff from Fenland were:
• Elaine Newell, deputy superintendent registrar at the Cambridge and March registration offices, who has worked for the council in several roles since 1988.
• Former headteacher of Burrowmoor Primary School, March, Sue Wilson, who retired from her job as head of the primary service at the county council last year after 34 years’ service with the authority.
• Thelma Doncaster, a support worker to people with learning difficulties and special needs, who works at 20 Alder Close in March. She celebrated 25 years’ service last year.
• Derrick Biggs, who has worked in social care for 41 years, 25 of which have been at the county council.
He is currently head of provider services for adult social care.
