Celebrating a glorious 30 years

Staff member Gloria Gates celebrated her 30th anniversary at Woodcote by becoming a catwalk supermodel.

Gloria, who is Ryman's longest serv​ing employee, has cared for residents since the village opened in 1986.

She was delighted with her new uniform, joking that it had taken 30 years to get trousers.

"It's definitely the best. I love it, it makes everything feel bright. It is perfect timing – just in time for the start of spring.''

The best thing was that residents at Woodcote loved the new look.

"They're all smiles when they see us coming.''

Resident Frida Pycroft said the staff looked great.

"They look very easy to work in and they're nice and comfortable. Whatever they cost it is worth it.''
