Wilma marks a mile­stone

Ayrshire Post - - Ayrshire People -

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.
