Nurse honoured with long-service award
A LOCHABER woman has received an award for her long service in the nursing profession.
The Queen’s Long Service Certificate and Badge was presented to Cheryl McIntosh by the Queen’s Nursing Institute for Scotland at a ceremony on October 9 in Edinburgh.
During her career, Cheryl was the Queen’s district nurse in Argyll, Lorn and Lochaber.
Angela said: ‘Cheryl notably spent her working life in the nursing profession, having been superintendent in Fort William latterly in her career. In June 2009, she received the MBE from the Queen for voluntary services for Lochaber.’

The women recently had afternoon tea at the Moorings Hotel, Banavie, to celebrate Cheryl’s honour. The award is given to community nurses completing 21 years of service.
