Sometimes when I come into work it is so wonderful to hear either the Samoan, Tongan, Fijian or the Cook Island elderly singing wonderful hymns before they get underway with their daily Fia Ola programmes. Then to hear the laughter and banter later in the morning coming from their room certainly brings a smile to […]
February was a busy month with the Board of trustees and myself completing the final parts of the strategic plan for the next five years and one of the main priorities going forward will be “Looking after our customers better”.
