Wilma marks a milestone
An NHS employee shares her 70th birthday this month with the organisation she works for.
Wilma Barrett, from Drongan, has been with the NHS for almost 30 years working as a domestic assistant at Ailsa Hospital then Coylton Health - Clinic.
Wilma and her colleague Moira keep the health centre clean.
The health board worker loves her job and said: “While I still feel fit I will continue to work for the NHS.”
When she is not working Wilma enjoys doing crosswords, reading and spending time with her children and grandchildren, even touring the country to watch her granddaughter’s disco dancing.
Wilma and husband Jim also celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year.
The pair are off on the holiday of a lifetime to Australia at the end of the month to celebrate both of the milestones.
