In October 2019, our then domestic, Alison Buckland, completed an incredible 20 years’ service here at Aveley Lodge. Alison began working at Aveley Lodge as a domestic before moving into the kitchen to become one of our full time cooks. There she spent many years cooking thousands of dinners for our residents before deciding to sidestep back into the domestic role in 2012. Alison was a fabulous, reliable and highly valued member of staff, keeping the home looking wonderful and clean and smelling lovely and fresh. Alison was 100% dedicated to her job role but sadly decided to retire in 2021. Alison was presented at one of our monthly staff meeting with a surprise celebratory card, an ornate vase and hanging glass heart and a bunch of flowers in recognition of her most valued service to Aveley Lodge. Congratulations Alison!
