A Keighley care home has rewarded outstanding staff.

Herncliffe has presented its Carer of the Year Award to Joanne Taylor. And an accolade for best ancillary staff member went to Andrew Howarth, of the catering team.

“We introduced the Carer of the Year Award last year to recognise good care and key skills offered by our staff,” said John Kennedy, for Herncliffe, in Spring Gardens Lane.

“Joanne is an excellent example of a good carer, who offers everything for the benefit of the residents.

“Andrew not only excels in his work in the kitchen, but is also consistently bright and cheerful to all those he comes into contact with.
