The Arethusa Venture Centre has introduced a monthly award for “Employee of the Month”.
Ian Eldridge the proprietor of Bartella’s restaurant in Meopham, Kent, has kindly donated the prize in the form of a voucher for two at his restaurant each month. The restaurant serves delicious Mediterranean cuisine and will go down well with the staff!
This award is in memory of Lyn Cleverley OBE who was a former SYP trustee and Vice President of the Sea Scouts. Lyn lived in Meopham and frequented the restaurant on a regular basis and was an avid supporter of the AVC, visiting us many times right up to her death in 2013. The young people and the experience the staff gave them whilst with us was something very close to her heart.
The Arethusa SMT makes the decision who the recipient will be from the various teams nominations at the end of each month.
The recipients of the awards to date are:
March – Yvonne Boland, Sheila Lundy and Abi Rayner – Housekeeping team
April – Emma Gibbons, Administrator
May – Hannah Perry, Instructor
Congratulations to all AVC staff members who have won Employee of the Month so far.
Ian Eldridge is also very generously donating 20p each time soup is ordered from the menu, (Lyn’s favourite!) And will present us with the amount raised on an annual basis to be spent on new activity equipment.
We thank Ian for his kind and on-going support of the AVC.
