The Staff at St Swithun’s and all the Vaccination Centre Volunteers were in for a big treat this week when Diane and Kathryn, Vaccination Centre Nurse Coordinators, surprised everyone with a cream tea of delicious homemade cakes and sandwiches as a thank you for working so hard throughout the pandemic and for supporting the Vaccination programme at the Community Centre.
Chris Bann, Centre Manager also presented Kathryn and Diane with a bunch of flowers in the ECP colours, Yellow and Blue and thanked them both for all their hard work and dedication coordinating the vaccination roll out in the Eastmoor Community.
Kathryn and Diane said, "It has been an absolute pleasure working at the Centre, everyone from Eastmoor and wider community have been so grateful for the vaccines, it hasn't felt like coming to work at all."
