Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Clare Damodaran

A care home in Blair­gowrie said farewell to the house­keeper who has been part of the team for al­most 30 years.

He­len Lovie has re­tired from her post at Muir­ton House on Essendy Road af­ter 28 years of ser­vice.

He­len was ini­tially em­ployed as a laun­dry as­sis­tant in 1989, and through­out her ca­reer pro­gressed to head of house­keep­ing.

A sur­prise tea party was held for He­len re­cently and she was pre­sented with gifts and flow­ers from the res­i­dents of the home and her col­leagues.

Cather­ine Rus­sell, man­ager at Muir­ton House, said: “He­len has been an as­set to Muir­ton House over the past 28 years, and we will cer­tainly miss her. She has al­ways had a great deal of pride in her work and in the home.

“Main­tain­ing a high stan­dard of clean­li­ness is es­sen­tial to Muir­ton House, and He­len al­ways en­sured that the home was spot­less.

“She has set a high bar for our next head of house­keep­ing.

“We all wish He­len a very happy re­tire­ment.”

He­len said: “I have thor­oughly en­joyed work­ing at Muir­ton House for nearly 30 years.

“I have loved mak­ing the home feel warm and friendly, bring­ing in plants and bulbs to make the gar­den look nice as well as keep­ing the rooms clean and tidy.

“I still feel like I’ll be part of the Muir­ton House fam­ily, even though I’ll be en­joy­ing my re­tire­ment.”
